  • Menu Total/Meat, Your Parents

    1986. Germany. Directed by Christoph Schlingensief. With Helge Schneider, Wolfgang Bertzky, Alfred Edel, Dietrich Kuhlbrodt. Schlingensief called Menu Total his best film. A traumatized young man, abused by his father, imagines himself as Adolf Hitler when dreaming of revenge. Schlingensief released this film, which follows no linear narrative structure, at a moment when right-leaning German intellectuals argued for a coming to terms of the country’s relation with its Nazi past. Schlingensief disagreed. In German; English subtitles. 81 min.
