The Humorist is a film about a week in the life of Boris Arkadiev, a fictional Soviet stand-up comedian. Boris is tormented not only by external oppression and censorship but also by his own insecurities that poison all his relationships.
Music, art and chaos in the wild West-Berlin of the 1980s. The walled-in city became the creative melting pot for sub- and pop-culture. Before the iron curtain fell, everything and anything seemed possible. B-MOVIE is a fast-paced collage of mostly unreleased film and TV footage from a frenzied but creative decade, starting with punk and ending with the Love Parade, in a city where the days are short and the nights are endless. Where it was not about long-term success, but about living for the moment - the here and now.
This is an excellent documentary (featuring Nick Cave, Blixa Bargeld, David Bowie, New Order, David Hasselhoff & Hitler!!). It's main concern is the music scene of West Berlin (during the 80s) & it's evolution in a political enclave during the Cold War years.
Please check it & review; I feel like I'm the only person that's seen it & it deserves a wide audience. Watch it, love it, tell the others.
