Warnung vor einer heiligen Nutte

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1971

P.P.'s rating of the film Beware of a Holy Whore

Pure hysteria. So much broken glass, so much emotion. I appreciate the way Fassbinder used the pillars to transition through the separate dialogues. Also, the way in which characters weave in and out of different languages - German, English, French, Italian. I also like how he approached each scene as a separate composition. Overall, though, it was tedious to get through.
