Great movie. Bad print. It was raining green spots throughout this largely black and white film, and while that was a sort of interesting effect, it wasn’t really supposed to be that way.
Aesthetically pleasing. Rich and interesting metaphors of observance and experience. Very much a film about Berlin. With beautiful, almost classic Hollywood cinematography. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Peter Falk. It’s great.
It’s actually pretty funny to even begin to compare it to the god-awful American adaptation of it City of Angels (1998) because it is so incredibly bad and hilarious in comparison.
