Stroszek | Chicago Reader

Stroszek

Or, the Adventures of Bruno S. in America, home of the brave and land of tentative freedom. Bruno, an eccentric Berlin street singer, was the star of Werner Herzog's Every Man for Himself and God Against All; in this 1977 feature Herzog once again uses him as an emblem of otherworldly innocence adrift in a land that hovers threateningly beyond his comprehension. Described as a "ballad" by its maker, Stroszek is part moral tale and part absurdist comedy, as our scruffy hero leaves the claustrophobia of Berlin to find a new life in the wide open spaces of northern Wisconsin. Instead, he finds a dancing chicken. In English and subtitled German.
