a brooding, melancholic journey through our mortality, contending seriously - if also reflexively - with that strange sort of desire, familiar to all horror fans, surrounding death.

Audience Reviews for Der Todesking (The Death King)

Der Todesking is the story of the most masochistic, suicidal creature on earth. The post-WWII German. This film shows how Allied propaganda has convinced Germans that they need to feel sorry for their past. The level of guilt the "good guys" have forced on Germans have pushed them to the edge. At least that's what I think this movie's about. I could be completely wrong. If I'm right, this is a horribly boring movie with a great theme. If I'm wrong, this is a horribly boring movie. It certainly does have its great moments, but they're few and far between. This is really the slowest pile of crap calling itself a movie that I've ever seen.
