An anarchistic, loutish poet (Rainer Werner Fassbinder) gives booze-soaked and bitter voice to his disdain for polite society as he goes on a destructive jag through the countryside, wrecking the lives of those unfortunate enough to be intimate with him as well as his own. Volker Schlndorff's long-suppressed adaptation of the early Bertolt Brecht play, originally produced for German television, also stars Margarethe von Trotta, Sigi Graue, Hanna Schygulla, Irmgard Paulis. 84 min. Standard; Soundtrack: German PCM mono; Subtitles: English; featurettes. In German with English subtitles.
