holy hell.  tremendous movie.  i hadn't been to the theater to see a movie in months so it was nice to break that lull with something of this quality.  petzold is the missing link between hitchcock and bresson.  graceful and devastating.  looking forward to revisiting.

Will finally have time to catch this this weekend, extra excited now. Planning to watch some of Petzold's other films in the meantime.
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk
