  • The Pedestrian: post-war Germany without the chewing gum

    Maximilian Schell’s 1973 investigation of West Germany’s relationship with its Nazi past wishes away the American cultural trappings that inform the better-known works of his New German Cinema peers. It’s the sort of failure from which cults are made, says Brad Stevens.
