This has to be one of the oddest films I've ever seen. Stroszek is basically a heart-breaking, poignant, and often hilarious film that goes into the territories of both absurd comedy and tragic tragedy. It's hard to describe why I loved this film so much; I think the reason it was so great wasn't because it was a masterpiece in storytelling or cinematography or anything, but just the beautiful moo... read more

“This has to be one of the oddest films I've ever seen. Stroszek is basically a heart-breaking, poignant, and often hilarious film that goes into the territories of both absurd comedy and tragic tragedy. It's hard to describe why I loved this film so much; I think the reason it was so great wasn't because it was a masterpiece in storytelling or cinematography or anything, but just the beautiful mood it sets is absolutely brilliant, and it gives me a unique feel, one that I've never experienced from a film before.

Even though I did enjoy it, I must say the pacing in the middle of the film got a bit messed up. It sort of dragged and made the film somewhat dry as a whole. But, other than that, it's a nearly flawless film. That's the only thing keeping it just below the title of "Mas” read more

"Erilaisuuden tuomia vaikeuksia, harhaanjohtavia ylämäkiä/unelmia, huonoja ihmissuhteita, omahyväisyyttä, väkivaltaa, töitä, uskottomuutta. Ja lopussa vielä kaikki tiivistetään mm. tanssivan kanan ja symboliikan avulla. Amerikkalainen unelma on pelkkää fuulaa ja Herzogin näkemys siitä on vahvasti todellisuuteen nojaava."

"Powerfully intense and painfully realistic, Stroszek magnificently captures the cruel, bitter reality of the American dream. Deliberate melodrama is avoided here, as the film instead relies on subtle, complex emotions and its dreary landscape to evoke its message, without being too preachy. There is never a dull moment to be found in this very clever masterpiece. "
