Rainer Werner Fassbinder Bundesrepublik Deutschland, 1973

Petra Simmons's rating of the film Angst essen Seele auf

This was when RWF was just starting to really trust his own genius at birthing whole these not films but lush layered inter-referential cinematic units. Which in his social critiques is like, Sirk via Brecht, but intersectional (i.e. whole). Mira & Ben Salem are nuanced dramatists; supporting cast more like perfect signifiers. The whole thing’s beautiful. As arch/scathing as tragic/true This is how you do homage! 4.5
