Helge Schneider - Texas - Doc Snyder hält die Welt in Atem (1993)

Description: Doc Snyder is an accomplished villain who tyrannizes Texas in a funny way. He frees his brother from jail or tries to get back his laundry bag. Always well dressed and hilarious Schneider creates a brilliant Wild West Movie. The secret hero of Texas is Helmut Körschgen performing as Lt. Körschgen. He introduces 00 Schneider, Schneiders main character of the following movie.

Either you love this movie, or you hate it. It depends on how you like the unique humour of the famous (or notorious) comedian and jazz-musician Helge Schneider. The story is practically nonexistent, and the whole movie seems to be made of out-takes and bloopers. This movie addresses some self-inflicted stereotypes people put upon themselves, be it as German lower class to middle class or be it as the Germany that idolizes America and the Wild Wild West. Of course, Karl May has done his part to further the cause of Helge Schneider here. Helge addresses these stereotypes, and he does it without mercy. It would be strange if this movie made sense to anyone not knowing the time between 1950 and 1980 - which is the time that obviously formed Helge Schneider in a way that he had to make that movie. It's a pay back, and a very good one. This is surely the Monty Python of Germany. However, Monty Python gave up some of it's local bite for a wider audience, and Helge Schneider obviously did not work towards such a commitment. This makes his movies much more "right on", and much less viewable to anyone without relation to the cultural time addressed in his movie. (imdb comments)
