JOURNEYS TO BERLIN/1971 is, according to MoMA, “a caustic, digressive, and at times funny meditation on psychoanalysis, violence, mass ornament, and mass hysteria, a film rich with non-sequiturs that ricochet from Rosalind Russell and Stonehenge to Leon Trotsky and Ulrike Meinhoff. “Is JOURNEYS FROM BERLIN/1971 autobiography or fiction?“, Rainer asks. “Is it dadaist vaudeville or legitimate filmic research? … Are its armchair terrorists and self-absorbed narcissists worthy of being made to voice serious moral-political concerns?” A short time later, the actress Cynthia Beatt made her own Berlin film: BÖSE ZU SEIN IST AUCH EIN BEWEIS VON GEFÜHL (1983) which will also be available for streaming on arsenal 3.
