Critic Reviews for Germany in Autumn
At its best, the film argues that it's impossible to have a 'coherent' left wing position on terrorism.
It's sometimes startlingly beautiful, often obscure and confusing, sometimes funny and mostly disturbing, as it should be.
It is, of course, wildly uneven (and sometimes insufferable), but there is an urgency and engagement in each of the episodes.
Germany in Autumn, though its contributions are uneven, is a fascinating political symposium, in which the cost of preserving order is anxiously measured against the cost of the order that is being preserved.
Though events happened over thirty years ago, the film is still relevant, exciting, urgent and mind-blowing.
A compelling and historically significant addition to German cinema, but those unfamiliar with that country's political situation may find it difficult to relate to.
