The Patriot | Chicago Reader

The Patriot

Alexander Kluge's essay films represent a superior stripe of didactic cinema: they're witty, inventive, and well paced, often like leftist versions of the science documentaries Frank Capra turned out for Bell Telephone in the 50s. Best of all, they actually teach some things worth knowing. This 1979 feature looks into the historical roots of contemporary Germany, blending fiction sequences, documentary footage, and interviews with political leaders.
