This is the main problem with the movie: Gunther’s got too many things. He’s easily got the most quirks of any killer in any movie ever. Does he really need to be a Nazi AND a peeping tom? Does he need to play Russian roulette AND create torture devices? Does he need to be in the ducts at all? This certainly gives him a lot of character and makes him memorable, yes, but it’s at the expense of plot and story. The movie is only 80 minutes long and about half of it involves Kinski just sitting on his own doing something creepy. And it’s a shame because Kinski is actually giving a somewhat subtle and nuanced performance, under the circumstances. It’s just all bad guy and nothing for him to really do.
