Plot Outline:

In a town, soldier, orderly and husband Woyzeck is an anomaly. He sometimes hears voices and feels disjointed with those around him. His captain treats him as a fool, the local doctor treats him as cruel test subject and his wife often flirts and has affairs. Yet when he finally learns the truth, it will lead to a confrontation based on his increasing madness. -- Chris Kavan

Whether its the poor aging of Georg Büchner's original play, or Klaus Kinski's impenetrable and frankly hilarious performance, or even the fact the opening credits of this movie feature sped up footage of Kinski tackling a military fitness regimen, but Woyzeck was a tremendously isolating film that failed to compensate for that isolation with anything particularly intelligent or thought-provoking to say. Werner Herzog's trademark slow pacing can be wonderfully atmospheric with the right script, but here it just makes 80 minutes spent in a very unpleasant world stretch to eternity. Avoid.

Klaus Kinski is entrancing as the violent and manic army officer Woyzeck. The severity of the revenge plot is raised to greatness by Kinski's full-bodied performance. The film would not have been as great with another actor at the helm.
