A low level German soldier (Klaus Kinski) begins to lose his grip on reality after subjecting himself to bizarre scientific experiments, and flies off the handle after learning his sweetheart (Eva Mattes) has taken another lover. Shot jut a week after filming wrapped on Nosferatu, and on the same locations with the same crew in just over half a month's time, Woyzeck feels rushed and a little stagy but is worth seeing for another crazed Kinski performance and a haunting, gracefully shot killing sequence towards the conclusion.
