A growing cult classic among upcoming German filmmakers and writers, Roland Klick’s masterpiece Supermarkt follows a young hood through the gutters of the Reeperbahn as he and other smalltime crooks plot a shopping mall heist to escape their welfare existence. Pitched somewhere between Rebel Without a Cause and Taxi Driver, this hugely stylized movie includes stunning photography by Jost Vacano (Das Boot, nearly all Paul Verhoeven movies), who essentially invented the steadicam on Supermarkt’s set—two years later Garrett Brown would introduce his version on Bound for Glory to enduring fanfare. The proof is on screen, and audiences are treated to some richly choreographed, visceral sequences. It also features Eva Mattes of The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant and Stroszek.
