Good Bye, Lenin  DEC 12 2004  rating: 4.5 stars

Like many movies I enjoy, Good Bye, Lenin doesn't fit neatly into any particular genre. It's billed as a comedy, but could easily be considered a drama or even a romance. I loved the dual Kubrick homages...the overt 2001 reference and the later less obvious Clockwork Orange reference. (Of course, I may have missed a nod to Full Metal Jacket...I'm not sure how "Private Snowball" translates into German.)
