  1. Aur Ora B's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

  2. Katya Kazbek's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    It seems simple,—and isn't the social ladder at the center of half of the coming of age plots,—but it's a poignant, complex study of class in 1970s Western Germany. I kind of hoped for a happy end, that Fox would take up with the circus impressario again, but I'm actually glad there was no straightwashing. Cuts deeper this way.

  3. Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    the scene in the car with lenny playing on the radio is one of my favourite scenes in anything ever i just wish it was longer

  4. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Don't fall in love with the bourgeoise fags!! They're not very nice!!

  5. jonijtr's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    another film about the fragileness of human beings from Fassbinder, this time it's about class relation, betrayal, and human condition. Fassbinder himself as the lead Fox gives an enigmatic performance of a gay man transcend as a victim of the upper class, though this film failed kinda fails to fully dig more the social theme and ended up focusing in the individual relationship, a bit disappointing for me

  6. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    A bleak and pessimistic portrayal of human vanity and predatory instincts, directed with a clinical and unforgiving eye. It's also an engrossing and very watchable drama, helped by Fassbinder's own performance in which he achieves a touching vulnerability.

  7. JOHN ATHERTON's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Believable scenarios , how one can put everything on the line for what is, with hindsight, worthless, and should have known better to start with. As some say, a dog eat dog world especially where it comes to money.

  8. moniquekidman's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Fassbinder's relentlessly bleak dissection of class struggle is interesting partially because of how refreshingly queer it is. The characters' queerness, for the most part, exists as extensions of them, rather than simply as a narrative device. Fassbinder (as an actor) is truly heartbreaking as Fox, personifying the struggle of fitting into different facets of society where he is unwanted.

  9. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Another enjoyably raw and honest look at humanity through the filter of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, this takes a look at how much more complicated things can become when love and money and lust are all muddled up.

  10. Maria's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    a reminder that rich fucks will ruin your life

  11. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Five stars for Fassbinder's schlong (and that unforgettable ending scene)

  12. ammar's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

  13. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    It's like hearing so much about someone for months, and then finally meeting them only to be even more fascinated and curious than before.

  14. 'king Harold's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Jesus, first time I've seen this, incredible, the final scene had me laughing like a drain. Dinner at the in laws has never been funnier either.Sometimes I feel like that on here, you know, not worthy. Loved Fox's clothes, esp the white tie/maroon shirt combo. And that De Tomaso Pantera! I've always wanted one of those. 'Only fit for the fairground' is a good line for a song, I'm having that.

  15. anwoody's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Unpleasant bourgeoisie and simple trusting proletariat. Exploitation on a grand scale but a not unexpected plot development.

  16. francescaborrelli's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

  17. unearthly_red's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    an LGBT movie where society's intolerance isn't the issue is pretty refreshing. Fassbinder seems fascinated with unequal relationships and manipulation, and his performance worked really well here

  18. Jason's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Oft' noted that from THE MERCHANT OF FOUR SEASONS on, Fassbinder's body of work is essentially one of-a-piece extrapolation. It has thus always been hard for me to pick an absolute favourite. Revisiting it (by virtue of the dazzling new Criterion 4k dealeo), I am ready to put FOX AND HIS FRIENDS at the front of the line. Fassbinder's (conceptually rich) performance earns it special accreditation. And that ending!

  19. nico's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    There isn't much space for nuance in the story. Almost like a fable, the unsurprising plot and its moral lessons serve a duty of social critic that nowadays sounds a little dated. Nonetheless, a poignant political stance given by a genius filmmaker is also what make this movie so relevant and worthy.

  20. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    You definitely get more a sense of who Fassbinder is in this one. He is the alpha male who quickly assesses the situation and gets control. This one's about class distinctions. His lover gains a sense of control by making fun of his lack of sophistication.

  21. Aardsy's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

  22. FISCHER's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    Un puissant film "politique" qui dépasse de loin le cadre de l'homosexualité et qui décrypte avec efficacité et pertinence la nature complexe des rapports de force entre individus... www.cinefiches.com

  23. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Fox and His Friends

  24. Giuseppe R.'s rating of the film Fox and His Friends

    One of the best films of Fassbinder. Ironic, ruthless, sweet and painful.
