Post Revanche
Revanche ("revenge" in German, I believe) is one of the very best films I've seen all year. As I watched it, I thought of our other thread in which we're lamenting the abandonment of Story as a priority in Hollywood. They've also abandoned any pretense of interest in portraying true eroticism. This film has both, in spades.

I didn't know anything about the film until yesterday when I got the weekly email from my local art cinema that said Revanche would be closing after Thursday. I was surprised to see that it got a 94% on RottenTomatoes.com, the highest rating I've ever seen, and after having seen the movie, I believe it deserves every one of those points.

I also found it interesting that the one other German-language movie I've seen recently, Der Baader Meinhof Komplex, also has revenge as a prominent theme. Should the Allies of WW II be worried?

Cue John Forster.
