Videothek Dr. Strangelove – Rent-a-remedy

A movie a day keeps the doctor away. And if that doesn’t work – well, then maybe I’ve got the wrong movie. In that case, the only remedy is visiting Dr. Strangelove in his Filmapotheke (film pharmacy). The old school video library is tiny and stuffed with a very fine selection of films you’ve probably never heard of.

Just like in a real pharmacy, I recommend telling the doctor your malady and allowing the pro to give you the best advice; Dr. Strangelove will find the cure for you. And it might not only be one or two or five DVDs. Dr. Strangelove might also help you cure some symptoms of a disease called “narrow-mindedness”. If you are affected by that very serious illness, the doctor will gladly talk about politics and worldviews as well. That is why he also has a kind of obscure selection of books in his store while he also fights some private wars against the local media and regularly runs for the office of the city mayor.

Pro tip if you decide to get into politics: If you open your mind too much – your brain will fall out.
