1969, Janus Films, 116 min, West Germany/France/Luxembourg, Dir: Barbet Schroeder

Director Barbet Schroeder’s stunning portrait of the dark underbelly of the ’60s sex-and-drugs revolution is like a Velvet Underground song on film: Mimsey Farmer stars as the gorgeous, Edie Sedgwick-like junkie princess who draws German drifter Klaus Grunberg into her sunlit world of Euro beach parties, retired Nazis and heroin fixes. With a brilliant, sinister score by Pink Floyd that perfectly captures the dreamy paranoia of Schroeder’s early masterpiece.
