This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Querelle

I find it rather suiting that fassbinder ended his career with a movie where the main character is striving for his identity and struggles with emotional strength. It just feels like the right note to end on. Be it that the note is a very erotically surreal note. The only thing that stops me from loving it is the inauthenticity of the dialogue and the lackluster lead performance.
