A good movie

9 years ago at Jul 31 12:50
Honestly, I have to admit it that I haven't seen many movies directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder so I cannot really judge his work (at least, the situation is not as bad as with Andrei Tarkovsky as I haven’t seen anything directed by this great maste). Anyway, this flick is the one I have seen which made the best impression on me. Indeed, if I remember correctly, I saw it when I was living in E... read more

Film Journal 2020 (84 movies items)

"The first time I have seen Fassbinder the poet. His mise-en-scene is some of the most thought-out, brutally honest and beautiful I have seen in film. The shifting dynamics between the characters and their relation to the rest of the world are fascinating, but holy shit did the look of damn near every single frame here blow me away. "

" Notes: To be honest, it has been ages since I saw this movie and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Anyway, if I remember correctly, I saw it when I was living in England, I was following a movie class at the time and this feature was one we had to watch. The directing and acting were very sober and realistic and it made the whole thing rather fascinating to watch. To be honest, Fassbinder had a rather gloomy visual style, you had to really dig it, and his movies are not what you cou"
