Maybe my least favorite of the German New Wave.  I think I saw Death of a Salesman in high school, and I've caught pieces of Handmaid's Tale.

Haven't seen any.

Actually, I have seen Death of a Salesman.  Meh.

I think I've seen his Billy Wilder doc as well.

I've seen Young Törless, The Tin Drum, and Circle of Deceit. Not really a fan of any of those. Sorry, Volker.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Didn't mind The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum. But that was co-directed with a woman, wasn't it?
