Why Does Herr R. Run Amok?

1977 Rated UR 1hr 28m

There's nothing necessarily wrong with the way Herr R. (Kurt Raab) is living his life. After all, he's a dependable employee, a dutiful husband and a caring father. But after growing increasingly frustrated by the predictability of his humdrum existence, he sees only one solution to the monotony: running violently amok. German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder helms this withering critique of bourgeois life that's based on actual events.
