Ambitious, Excruciating, Confusing, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if historical theatre, esp. Toller's German self-critical realism between the world wars in the formative years of the Third Reich, intrigues

Don't see it if you cannot focus for continuous 105 minutes in uncomfortable seats on clunky, Germanic construction, clumsily spoken dialog with no surprise

Don't see it if there's something better you'd rather do. Read more
