Rating of

Jeremy Irons as Mr. Kafka, he gets involved with an underground group after one of his co-workers was murdered. Acting was top notch with Irons on board and screenplay superb. A few great lines: Dr. Murnau - "The purpose of the individual is always in question." and Kafka - "In my experience the truth is not... that convenient." Overall, the pace, soundtrack and direction was dull. It proves that Soderbergh is a miss or hit during the early stages of his career. Kafka is worth a look for those interested about Kafka's story or the directors techniques.

Rating of

1991 mystery thriller film directed by Steven Soderbergh. Ostensibly a biopic, based on the life of Franz Kafka, the film blurs the lines between fact and Kafka's fiction (most notably The Castle and The Trial), creating a Kafkaesque atmosphere. It was written by Lem Dobbs, and stars Jeremy Irons in the title role, with Theresa Russell, Ian Holm, Jeroen Krabbé, Joel Grey, Jim McPhee, Armin Mueller-Stahl, and Alec Guinness.A cult movie to rewatch.

Our Daily Free Stream: Steven Soderbergh - Kafka. Auch weiterhin kein neuer Soderbergh in Aussicht... Wie lange mag dieses Versprechen halten? - Wer erinnert sich noch an die tolle Entstehungsgeschichte von Steven Soderberghs Debüt? Wie er das Drehbuch in acht Tagen schrieb als er nach Hollywood fuhr? Wie er die Schauspieler gegen Rückstellung spielen liess und schliesslich alles "independent" finanzierte. Indie, das war damals noch ein Abenteuer und keine Marke! Schliesslich gewann Soderbergh überraschend Cannes und darf seitdem als "Godfather" des Indie Kinos gelten. Kafka war sein zweiter Film und spielt wie bereits sein Debüt vor allem in Innenräumen. Die sehen aus wie der wahrgewordene Albtraum eines Set-Designers - oder wie Kafkas Prag. Kafka wurde in Schwarzweis...
