Good Bye, Lenin

posted by Jason Kottke   Dec 12, 2004

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.)
