    Thank you for posting this. The subtitles were translated very well. I have not read much Jünger either but found this documentary highly interesting, and far from “disjointed”. He speaks candidly, his informative commentary gives a complete picture of the various stages of his life. This film is not only an important biographical source for this man’s life and work, it is also a document that gives insight into the experience and thought of an entire generation of educated middle class Germans who longed for the noble and the heroic in the cold world of the masses. I have sent your link to some of my German friends.

    Who would have thought that this conservative man would have experimented with LSD in his 50s!

    I found this quite disjointed. Was it meant to be a hagiography? Not meaning to offend.
    I have not read his books, so I probably do not get it. One must be part of that I guess.
    I get the fact he was his own man in an age that that is dangerous.

    [hey, where’s the music in this space] (I never complain, just ask me.) oops.

    This documentary is marred by the use of absurd American Holocaust propaganda that is surely not accepted even by mainstream scholars today.

    The attempt to compliment Junger by linking him to the plot on Hitler’s life is risible. His essay “The Peace” was certainly not outside the bounds of Nazi orthodoxy in envisioning a post-war federated Europe. The Gestapo cleared Junger of any connection to the plot, and that was good enough for Hitler.

    Aside from these lapses, though, the interview and the footage are very interesting.
