Critic Reviews for Taxi zum Klo (Taxi to the Toilet)
Taxi zum Klo treats sex seriously without sacralizing it; throughout the film, Ripploh reveals a wry intelligence about the eternal dilemma of monogamy versus promiscuity.
[A] strong current of humour belies a serious engagement with the general, perhaps intractable problem of whether our impulses toward intimacy and unaccountability can ever be reconciled.
Ripploh left teaching when disciplinary action was taken against him, and devoted himself full-time to filmmaking. This, his first feature, was made on a shoestring but the result is a mature work, perfectly controlled and finely photographed.
Ripploh's filmmaking is rough-hewn, exultantly candid, and unafraid of bodies and orifices, in other words just right for his intimate and tart pre-AIDS document
First released three decades ago, this self-produced portrait of Frank Ripploh's excursions into Berlin's gay world is curiously sexless seen in 2011.
Audience Reviews for Taxi zum Klo (Taxi to the Toilet)
A ground breaking film to challenge the taboo of the German culture. Made with a shoestring budget, Taxi Zum Klo is a marvelous film looking at the struggles Ripploh himself faces as a public school teacher in the day, but an active hustler at night. The explicit content was sure to shock many, I thought the use of jumpcuts with vintage pornography was quite a clever twist in terms of editing. Taxi Zum Klo was also hilarious to watch with its use of awkward comedy. Perhaps not for everyone but certainly an interesting piece of art house gem.
