Die Niklashauser Fart (The Niklashausen Journey) (1970)
Critic Reviews for Die Niklashauser Fart (The Niklashausen Journey)
Amazingly simple editing and sound design -- most scenes are complete in one shot and use only one or two sound effects or just music in addition to the dialogue-- create a minimally realist and hypertheatrical vision of class conflict and potential doom.
The story is slight, but every scene sticks with the viewer and drips with meaning.
Fassbinder suggests a temporal continuum of thwarted upheaval that can only be addressed (and, thus, confronted) by way of frontal artistic attack.
Twisting a German tradition to his own ends, Fassbinder restyles Bohm's martyrdom as a provocateur's call to arms.
Strictly for medieval shepherds on the look out for stray sheep.
Audience Reviews for Die Niklashauser Fart (The Niklashausen Journey)
Fassbinder chucks religion, philosophy, idealism, and economics in to a pot and lets it cook for 90 minutes. It's crazy but it works.
