Stroszek ★★★ 1977

Three German misfits—a singer, a prostitute and an old man—tour the U.S. in search of their dreams. Touching, hilarious comedy-drama with a difference and an attitude. One of Herzog's easiest and also best films. In English and German with English subtitles. 108m/C VHS, DVD . GE Wilhelm von Homburg, Eva Mattes, Bruno S, Clemens Scheitz; D: Werner Herzog; W: Werner Herzog; C: Thomas Mauch; M: Chet Atkins, Tom Paxton.
