A highly awkward blending of gay porn and political satire.
The humorless Reich makes for one dull and repetitive skin flick.
Revolting and hilarious satire.
A lovingly overblown piece of terrorist-chic trashfilm.
It's not good enough to be funny, not sexy enough to be erotic.
As thoroughly, gleefully disreputable a work of political critique as you could hope for.
Whatever little involvement the viewer may have in the onscreen goings-on is effectively impeded.
A moderately entertaining movie that nevertheless says nothing revolutionary about the way we live now.
La Bruce is first and foremost a dedicated destroyer of cinema, and his chaotic movies are his weapons. If you can handle that, Reich feels just right.
Very silly, a bit tedious and if you cut out all the sex and sloganeering, the whole thing would run about 15 minutes.
An excuse to watch smut and not feel like a perv.
Both a counter-cultural assault on homosexist ideology and a comment on the way a revolution is often watered by media-obsessed bleeding hearts.
No, "The Raspberry Reich" is not the long awaited for sequel to "The Strawberry Statement." Rather, it is about Gudrun(Susanne Sachsse) who feels that having sex on a bed is bourgeois, so she persuades her partner Holger(Daniel Batscher) to use every surface imaginable in their apartment for their coupling, before taking it outside to the elevators, inspiring a couple of neighbors(Ulrike Schirm & Stephan Dilschneider) to have a go at it. Che(Daniel Fettig) is satisfied with simply masturbating which Gudrun claims is counterrevolutionary.(Say it ain't so!) Meanwhile, Andreas(Dean Stathis), Helmut(Gerrit) and Clyde(Anton Z. Risan) kidnap Patrick(Andreas Rupprecht), the son of an industrialist, for the people's cause which also allows Clyde and Patrick to get familiar with each other in the trunk of the car.
While not the Marxist bisexual porn movie that the public has been clamoring for, "The Raspberry Reich" is still breezy hardcore fun that manages to have something meaningful to say about the state of the world between all of the sex. However, like pornography, the movie is interested in fantasy, in this case Gudrun's(who reminds me a little of somebody I used to know), both sexual and political, allowing her to play an extended game of cops and anarchists and forming conspiracy theories about the demise of the Baader-Meinhof gang who still resonate decades after their deaths in Germany.(As far to the left as I am politically, I don't take much stock in conspiracy theories.) At the same time, somewhat hypocritcally, she lives out her sexual fantasies in trying to liberate others but you cannot tell others to explore something they might be uncomfortable with.
