The film is full of beatings—it practically begins with a series of sadistic rituals that Lommel’s superiors perform on their new recruits—and it contains a few murders as well. Yet Fassbinder purposely drains the violence of suspense; it feels inevitable, ritualized, a cold fact of modern life.

Before making films, the prodigious and precocious Fassbinder founded a theatre troupe, and the coldly stylized, comically affectless performances are a mark of a singular sensibility. These performances, as well as his restrained, precise, yet highly textured and alluringly composed images, help to convert his starkly modern aesthetic into a world.

Formally, Love Is Colder Than Death blends the dynamic tracks and jarring cuts of the Nouvelle Vague with the arid, artificial performance style of RWF’s own Anti-Theater. But the film is more than the sum of its appropriations. Unabashedly off-putting (like Fassbinder himself), it stakes out its creator’s motifs and techniques, the latter changing with time but the former comprising the thesis to his career.
