Woyzeck is, if possible, ever more mysterious by the time we reach the end than it is at the beginning.
Handsomely mounting each scene, the director has trouble attaining any forward momentum, though he achieves some powerful moments while trying.
The film seems to have been barely directed--the camera setups are relentlessly banal.
Often painful but never truly affecting.
Klaus Kinski is exceptional and Herzog's narrative captivating.
Oppressive and unsatisfying.
I liked the parts of Woyzeck (Klaus Kinski's a m a z i n g performance and Werner Herzog's brilliant direction) but for some odd reason I didn't wind up loving the sum of said parts. For me the watch was kind of grueling (namely the story) but at by the time the whole thing was done I'm glad I saw it, but I don't feel the need to ever see Woyzeck ever again. Recommended but not exactly essential outside of Kinski's work.
Intense & powerful, Kinski rules
Ridiculed by his superior officer, restricted to a diet of nothing but peas by his doctor, a confused, nervous and undernourished soldier is finally unhinged by his wife's apparent infidelity. Although not exactly a barrel of laughs, this wasn't as gruelling as I'd expected. Comprised of long, static takes and clocking in at a mercifully short 80 or so minutes, the film was supposedly shot in 18 days and edited in another 4, immediately after Herzog, Kinski and crew wrapped on Nosferatu. Kinski is truly amazing in this, and perhaps because of the not inconsiderable novelty value of watching him play a pitiful wretch rather than a loathsome egomaniac, this is my favourite of his performances I've seen to date. Doubtless the film has much to say to intellectuals about the human condition; unfortunately, I couldn't find an intellectual to enlighten me, so I've had to draw my own conclusions: Go easy on those greens, and never trust a drum major!
A classic play is made into a very good movie by the great Werner Herzog. A basic but fundamentally solid adaptation of the stage play, in which Klaus Kinski delivers a monster of a performance as the title character.
