The True Alfred Redl
After learning some things about the life of Alfred Redl, I wish someone would make a more accurate version of his life. I loved Szabó's movie, but Redl was a real bastard in life - blackmailed into betraying his country, working as a double agent for a decade before being captured, responsible for the deaths of thousands.
In this movie he was a poor victim caught in a political trap, like a character in a Kafka novel. Does he really deserve to be turned into a hero?
This world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel.
