    Uschi from the Amon Duul commune, later w/Keith Richards, there’s always something interesting in RL!

      Fantastic addition. This is deliberately on the other end of today’s ultra-action films were your mind stops to function from info overload, same happens here due to inaction zero-load!! Talk about the settings are more interesting than the plot, murals described as “comic-strip panels”, four ultra chicks that you don’t sleep with you rather …fall asleep with (the exact with today’s porn overload). The extras (social critique) great food for thought, RL delivers!
      Time for summer vacation now, cheers!

        …oh, I should also mention the commentary list is deliberate separated to jump-cut to scenes instead of (die) watching the film, let alone live in the 1970 post-war fake Germany!!! A Wim Wenders fav! Cheers.
