The Power Of Emotion

Alexander Kluge’s 1983 West German Die Macht der Gefuehle, perhaps his most striking and interesting essay film, is a rigorous yet free-wheeling combination of fact and fiction that includes footage from silent films, opera, and such characters as a fire chief, a fur thief, and assorted lovers, murderers, victims, actors, and officials. Recommended. (JR)
