Every Man for Himself and God Against All

110 minutes 2013

Werner Herzog's first popular success (1974), and not surprisingly his most accessible film, less ironic and more "humane" (if that's the word) than his other work. A strangely sentimental story of a man who has been raised to adulthood without ever leaving the confines of a small cell, it's a sort of King of Hearts in reverse, with the man-child's efforts to socialize himself played as elementary social satire. And it works quite well, in a limited way, thanks largely to Herzog's audacity in casting a schizophrenic, identified only as "Bruno S.," in the central role. Also known as The Mystery of Kaspar Hauser. In German with subtitles.
