Mother Night

I have never read Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut, but the film was darkly ironic and although it was not in the four or five-star class, I found it watchable. I especially like the scene where Nick Nolte is viewing a film of himself spewing Nazi propaganda, and the shadow of his film face is reflected on his older face as he is stunned to realize who he had become.

I also liked the use of color film for memories and black and white for present time scenes. It was appropriately used and added depth to the film.
