Very Important Film To See.....,
This review is from: The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum (The Criterion Collection) (DVD)As I was watching this movie I couldn't help but be reminded of another story - 'the Trial' by Franz Kafka. Like 'the Trial's' main character, Joseph K, Katherina is a victim to a corrupt bearucratic system based upon ruining someone's life for the sake of others.
Whereas, I did not like 'the Tin Drum', Katherina Blum struck me very deeply - maybe because it is so real and relevent.
Along with this film I would recommend Fassbinder's 'Mother Kusters goes to Heaven' (a similar story about tabloid journalism following a tragedy).
