The American Soldier

Der amerikanische Soldat

Instrueret af Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Vesttyskland, 1970
Komedie, Drama, Avantgarde


Fassbinder’s experimental noir is a subversive, self-reflexive gangster movie full of unexpected asides and stylistic flourishes, and featuring an audaciously bonkers final shot and memorable turns from many of the director’s rotating gallery of players.

The American Soldier Instrueret af Rainer Werner Fassbinder


It’s one of Fassbinder’s most emotionally withholding films; it has the air of a technical exercise, with actors going through the motions of gangster movies but refusing to commit to them. There are hints, though, of the emotionally engaged cinema that Fassbinder would soon move on to, such as a monologue delivered by one character (in another unbroken long-take) that anticipates certain narrative elements of ALI: FEAR EATS THE SOUL. But for the most part, this is cold, brackish stuff.

Critical consensus places these early movies somewhat below Fassbinder’s later work, but The American Soldier displays the joy of an artist buzzing with the enthusiasm of creation, and the love of cinema.
