Oh goth, yes. If you can, watch the six hour TV version. The Director’s Cut isn’t bad, but doesn’t hold a candle to the long version. What I love about the German in this movie: all the accents. Normally, German TV actors speak standard German, but here, almost no-one does.
I recommended this movie to a friend to help practice listening to his German, and as a result I wanted to watch it again.
It’s still such a great film.
I’m retiring this blog. I’ll post my photos over at Ook, said the Librarian when I feel like it, but I don’t want to run two blogs any longer. Thanks to everyone who followed me here, maybe we’ll see each other over at Ook (it’s a nice place, I promise).

Umm, he is the *showrunner*. Of two shows. I think not burdening himself with historical research is actually pretty sensible.
Especially since doing quality research is not that easy and takes a lot of time. It’s not like you just look stuff up on Wikipedia (although that is an excellent starting point, don’t you dare diss Wikipedia!). People really underestimate the time and skill that goes into good research.
