Warnung vor einer heiligen Nutte

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1971

EdieEmm's rating of the film Beware of a Holy Whore

Fassbinder's autobiographical-ish film about making films, aka "film about brutality. (What else would one make a film about?)" Wherein both authenticity and artifice are deconstructed, and each is found to comprise the other; and where engagement with that perverse and brutal truth is a gratification both depraved and sublime... The farcical reality of humanity, and the depicting - and partaking - thereof. 4.5
