Volker Schlöndorff transported Bertolt Brecht’s 1918 debut play to contemporary West Germany for this vicious experiment in adaptation, seldom seen for nearly half a century. Oozing with brutish charisma, Rainer Werner Fassbinder embodies the eponymous anarchist poet, who feels that bourgeois society has rejected him and sets off on a schnapps-soaked rampage. Hewing faithfully to Brecht’s text, Schlöndorff juxtaposes the theatricality of the prose with bare-bones, handheld 16 mm camera work, which gives immediacy to this savage story of rebellion. Featuring a supporting cast drawn from Fassbinder’s troupe of theater actors that also includes Margarethe von Trotta, Baaldemonstrates the uncompromising vision of its director, a trailblazer of the New German Cinema.

Special features: 
– New 2K digital restoration, supervised by director Volker Schlöndorff, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
– Interviews from 1973 and 2015 with Schlöndorff
– New conversation between actor Ethan Hawke and playwright Jonathan Marc Sherman about the play and adaptation
– New interview with actor and filmmaker Margarethe von Trotta
– New interview with film historian Eric Rentschler
– New English subtitle translation
PLUS: An essay by critic Dennis Lim
