The first feature of Alexandre Rockwell (In the Soup), based on Georg Buchner’s short story about a young schizophrenic sent to live with a country pastor (also one of the sources of Herzog’s Every Man for Himself and God Against All), transposed here to a New York punk milieu. Rockwell’s budget was only $12,000 (1981). (JR)
