Signs of Life, Werner Herzog’s bleakly funny first feature starring Peter Brogle and Athina Zacharopoulou is a fantasy about going totally berserk. Herzog’s madman, a German soldier named Stroszek (Brogle), is sent by his superiors to guard a munitions dump on the isolated Greek island of Kos. The scorching heat, the parched landscape, the language barrier, and the prospect of nothing to do — all these things drive the poor fellow out of his gourd. So he threatens to blow the vicinity to kingdom come. This one-man siege turns into a devastatingly amusing one-man show. B+
