Lou Reed’s Berlin / Julian Schnabel

Lou Reed’s Berlin is a rock opera and a concert film revolving around a drug-addicted couple, Caroline and Jim.The album Berlin, released in 1973, has often been referred to as Lou Reed’s overlooked masterpiece, but was never performed live… until now. For five historic performances, a group of legendary musicians helped Lou Reed bring his lost classic to life. For five nights in December 2006 at St. Ann’s Warehouse Brooklyn, Lou Reed performed his masterwork about love’s dark sisters: jealousy, rage and loss.
