I thought I had better speak about this film now. It is awful.

I do not care how great blu-ray looks, etc., etc. It is still the same crap movie you started with.

Blu-ray cannot improve garbage. This is garbage.

The movie gives no clear explanation to the strange happenings throughout, nor is there any clear conclusion. We have a narrator, in German with subtitles, and we still don't know what's going on.

I love foreign films and enjoy reading subtitles in black and white movies. This film is awful.

Elsewhere I have read rave reviews about this title; did we watch the same movie?

I should not have to watch a film six times, or read somewhere else what was supposed to have happened. Apparently this is a take on the roots of fascism in Germany, I didn't see it.

Maybe they should make a movie tie-in book to include with it for explanation. Alleged "art" is the same everywhere, if it is weird it must be good.

Well this is definitely weird but it is not good.

Save your money and avoid the blu-ray junk. Eventually all movies will end up on a flash drive which we will plug into the USB port on our TV. All Hi-Def contains is larger files for more detail requiring more memory. Memory capacity is not a problem on a flash drive. They are easier to carry, handle and store and they don't scratch. That is after they have sold us the "old" technology for 25 years.

Hint: game systems have USB accessability and hook up to the TV.
