Egon Schiele is immortalized in Death and the Maiden 5

Death and the Maiden allows Egon Schiele to come to life. Most will not remember Schiele, but the young artist was a sensual provocateur that set Vienna afire. Most of the film is told in flashback, as we see how Schiele’s wife died and what fed his art during  World War I. You’ll never believe that how important the black market was to save lives during the Spanish Flu epidemic. While I enjoyed what I watched, it is a standard biopic. For the artists out there, they might dig it. What I didn’t like was how they kept Gustaf Klimt’s influence at the forefront. Oh well, it’s worth a rental.
