The outside is not a fixed limit but a moving matter animated by peristaltic movements, folds and foldings that together make up an inside: they are not something other than the outside, but precisely the inside of the outside.
(Deleuze – Foucault)
In contrast to El Greco's ushering of the spirit towards the heavens my paintings spit, ejaculate, regurgitate and projectile vomit the spirit out, rejecting it's bodily form in a fit of maniacal hysterics, a nonsensical reflexive outburst like the spasmodic speaking in tongues of those 'slain in the spirit'.

The first clip is from Klaus Lemke's "Rocker"
The most authentic movie about Hamburg in 1970's - Rock'n'roll, sex, drugs, 1970's lifestyle, 1970's hairstyle, murder, prostitution, Santana, bikers, Reeperbahn, and St. Pauli provide the basis for the story featuring Gerd and Modschiedler, the ill-assorted couple (if at all amateur actors, who act themselves) of this fantastic movie.
The last 4 clips are "Rollo Aller", part 1 - 4
After being suspended as a street cleaner, Eule is fed off with society and city life. He steals a moped (rollo) and together with his gambling addcited friend Daddel they go away on a trip to visit Bruce Lee’s grave in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, they only make it to Berlin and after a series of disastrous incidences they remorsefully return home to wife and kids.
Also well worth checking out is "Nordsee ist Mordsee" by Hark Bohm
