Satan's BrewBest film of cult German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Walter Kranz  (Kurt Raab) is a German anarchist poet, who is short of money after his publisher refuses to give him an advance. He get famous earlier by his revolutionary communist work. However, since a couple of years, he suffers from being blocked to continue writing. He tries various ways of raising money, including shooting one of his mistresses and relying on the life savings of a woman from the country who is fanatically devoted to him. He also has to contend with his long-suffering wife, his fly-obsessed crazy brother, his other mistress and a police murder investigation. Since his savings are coming to an end, he borrows money from everyone without being able to pay it back. He believe that he is reincarnation of Stefan George, a nineteenth century homosexual poet.

Satan's Brew 01Kurt Raab has a look that is devilish, diabolical, slightly seductive and with the possibility of violence or the unexpected at the drop of a hat. Mad hyperactive fun fast absurd surrealism black satire SM comedy. You have no idea where is movie and story driving you.
