Volker Schlöndorff transposes Bertolt Brecht’s late-expressionist work to latter-day 1969. Poet and anarchist Baal lives in an attic and reads his poems to cab drivers. At first feted and later rejected by bourgeois society, Baal roams through forests and along motorways, greedy for schnapps, cigarettes, women and men: ‘You have to let out the beast, let him out into the sunlight.’ After impregnating a young actress he soon comes to regard her as a millstone round his neck. He stabs a friend to death and dies alone. ‘You are useless, mangy and wild, you beast, you crawl through the lowest boughs of the tree.’

Cassel once again delivers a superb turn as the bank robbing, jail-breaking hood, which might be lacking in characterisation or insight, but is more than made up for with it's scary realism.

This could have all been done in an hour and a half tops but sadly after about an hour of it, i found myself getting a bit bored and wondered what on Earth could happen in another whole hour. I've actually become a huge fan of John Wayne and loved him in this role as a a rather funny character. Based on his character alone, I'd give the movie 5 stars. But because of the length and Fabian's role, I deduct!
