Angst vor der Angst

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1975

Samuel Donath's rating of the film Fear of Fear

4.5 4.5 One of the first films that made me want to study psychology. Beautiful and scary at the same time. We are unable to look away as we follow this lonely woman into madness. Her anxiety comes from within, and this is something that compels us to watch for as viewers in her incredible performance.
