Götter der Pest

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1970

Erik F.'s rating of the film Gods of the Plague

Hard to believe that Fassbinder went from making stuff like this to stuff like "The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant" within just a couple of years. The talent is there, but he learned very quickly how to use it to mold far more spectacular and penetrating works throughout his remarkably prolific career.
