(1979, Dir. Werner Herzog)

Moderately effective adaptation of the Georg Büchner play. Feels a lot longer than 82 minutes, due to Herzog’s deliberate style. Klaus Kinski shows some nice range as the browbeaten soldier who suspects his wife of adultery. Take a look at the image above and see if you can guess what happens next. I mean, talk about a spoiler. Why don’t they just put a nude Jaye Davidson on the box of The Crying Game?
