B-Movie: Lust & Sound In West-Berlin 1979-1989 2015
- 92 minutes
There is Blixa Bargeld, skinny as a rake, getting people drunk in the bar 'Risiko', and an earnest-looking Nick Cave collecting 'German Gothic' on a wall of his room in a Berlin flat. B-Movie is a documentary about music, art and chaos in the wild West Berlin of the 1980s: the walled-in city which became the creative melting pot for the sub and pop culture, attracting ingenious dilettantes and world famous celebrities alike. Before the iron curtain would fall, artists and communards, squatters and hedonists of all kinds would enjoy Berlin's unconventional lifestyle, starting with punk and ending with the Love Parade.
