Can anything be bleaker than the shabby slums of Berlin? Yes, argues director Werner Herzog in Stroszek: try Wisconsin sometime. Bruno S.. stars as an ex-mental patient who dreams of the so-called promised land of America. He aligns himself with like-minded prostitute Eva Mattes and elderly, near-senile Clemens Scheitz. Upon their arrival in Wisconsin, the three misfits find that theyre just as trapped in Dairy Country as theyd been in Germany–if not more so. The sour and bitter Stroszek earned worldwide critical and commercial acclaim.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
