The analysis section needs to be completely rewritten to remove the POV. Enough critics and scholars have analyzed the film for there to be plenty of sources for a real analysis section.--Supernumerary 02:39, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

So only "scholars" and "critics" are allowed to analyze? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:58, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Original research is not allowed, no. -- nae'blis 23:05, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Article image[edit]

New image is:


Old image was:

Image:Werner Herzog - Stroszek (1977) 001252000.jpg

I feel like the old (screen capture) image is more representative and more interesting than the DVD cover. I would go so far as to say that the DVD cover is actually pretty ugly. IMO, either of the two other older promotional posters would be better choices than the new DVD cover. Other opinions? (disclaimer: I uploaded the screen capture). KellenT 21:10, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Image:Stroszek_DVD_cover.jpg Image:Werner Herzog - Stroszek (1977) 001252000.jpg is a screenshot and film screenshots, per WP:NFC, are restricted for "critical commentary" only. Screenshots, per WP:MOSFILM, are not to be used in infoboxes except for title cards and even then they're only to be used as such in the absence of both the theatrical release poster and DVD/VHS covers. The above screenshot, therefore, should not be our choice of the infobox image. As far as DVD vs poster preference, I personally don't have a favourite (except that of the two posters, I do think the second is more descriptive of the film). The DVD cover was just easier to find and that's why I uploaded it but feel free to replace it with a poster.
Also, please note that I replaced the inline images with just a link to them. This is also per WP:NFC which does not allow non-free content to be displayed on talk pages. Big Bird (talkcontribs) 21:02, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I was unaware of the film style guideline, and thanks for the reminder on NFC inclusion. I guess my preference is the first poster, but mostly for aesthetic reasons. Why do you say the second one is more representative? KellenT 22:20, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, since this is the English Wikipedia, my preference for theatrical release posters would be that we display English language posters when available. In the absence of those, the poster from the country where the film was produced/filmed is also acceptable. This poster is in Polish and I don't think that Polish language posters enhance the reader's understanding of the article's subject in an English language encyclopedia, especially if the film has no official connection to Poland. The second reason why I prefer the second poster is because of the depiction of Bruno S playing the accordion. I think that represents something of the film's theme and can serve to enhance the reader's understanding of the subject. Big Bird (talkcontribs) 12:52, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Ha! I must have opened my own links in the wrong order, because we agree on which is the better poster. Sorry! KellenT 15:00, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
You know what? That actually is pretty funny! I was scratching my head wondering how you could upload a screenshot of Bruno S playing the accordion and, at the same time, not like the poster of Bruno S playing the accordion. I should have figured that one out on my own but I guess I may not be as intuitive as I like to believe :)
Good times!
Anyways, are we in agreement to upload this poster and use it as the infobox image in this article? Big Bird (talkcontribs) 15:06, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Correct. I've just uploaded it. Check File:Stroszek_poster.JPG and make any adjustments for the rationale you deem necessary. KellenT 15:21, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the upload. I've expanded the rationale. Big Bird (talkcontribs) 15:47, 9 March 2009 (UTC)


There is an Edison Cylinder that plays often as background in the movie. It isn't credited, but in the Director's commentary Herzog mentions it. It's the music that is playing while after the auction as the trailer is taken away. Anyone know the name of it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:11, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
