Götter der Pest

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1970

This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Gods of the Plague

Fassbinder hates hollywood, hollywood gangster movies, and you! With this movie in goes back to what worked with "Love is Colder than Death" and does it even uglier and more smug while at the same time adding more inspired flourish than feels very Max Ophuls. The formal beauty and detachment of the movie kept me engaged to the bitter-bitter end.
