Der Architekt (2016)55K
Der Architekt: Directed by Jonathan Parker. With Parker Posey, John Carroll Lynch, James Frain, Eric McCormack. When a couple sets out to build their dream house, they enlist the services of an uncompromising modernist architect, who proceeds to build HIS dream house instead of theirs.
“If youu0026#39;re an architect -and I am – this film trots out every negative stereotype youu0026#39;ve ever battled in your life and pumps it up to full volume. The architect is the comic villain in this piece: a vain, imperious, pseudo-intellectual, budget-busting, turtleneck wearing wife stealer in the classic Frank Lloyd Wright mode. Of course old FLW also had world-class talent but in my humble opinion he has a lot to answer for with the reputation he saddled generations of future architects with. But I digress. I may have found this film more amusing than most because of the many sly digs at my chosen profession, but itu0026#39;s still a decent comedy.”
