  1. Rebecca DeLucia's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    pertinent as ever. for the most rigid and socially destitute, it is Yorgos's interception of an internecine hatred that props up the withered hope of a unity-against, a belonging under duress and delusion. Hi PotUS.

  2. EdieEmm's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    You can watch this style develop from indie to opulent over the course of RWF's career, but it's already all here. Brutal scathing smart charming (like him) & brilliantly stylized. And Hanna Schygulia is a goddamn babe. Often imitated (Jarmusch; Andersson; is it me or does every Athina Rachel Tsangari film contain some nod to this movie?) prototypical RWF, in his deliciously catty career-long war on smug hypocrisy.

    "Well Fassbinder would disagree with you about Kurt Raab, he put on his list..." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/05/episode-58-first-fassbinder-episode.html

  9. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    A great film. Unique structure, daringly acted, utterly stylized and yet deeply emotional and still as relevant als ever.

  10. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Katzelmacher

  11. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    Una curiosa historia sobre el chisme, la hipocresía y los prejuicios. Un grupo de personas se reencuentra una y otra vez. Todos hablan y fingen a diario. Hay una suerte de mediocridad que ronda en dicha generación envenenada por el cinismo.

  13. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Katzelmacher

  14. Stevie's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    The early roots of Fassbinder's melodramatic style with excellent cinematography and some breathtaking tracking shots. The acting is uniformly superb.

  15. lina maj's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    Great composition and spaciousness in interiors .

  16. Lysistrata's rating of the film Katzelmacher

  17. Doc Block's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    Fassbinder himself as a greek tenant !!

  18. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    Not particularly entertaining (though there are brilliant moments of dry comedy) but I couldn't help from keep watching it. There's just something hypnotic about nasty borad Germans! This is a deeply sad movie that showcases the brutality of the human spirit. I admire this movie than actually love it. Watch this with caution.

  19. Danny Indio's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    something about this movie i like, can't say what it is. the characters are all vain, brutal, sexy and poetic in their own way.

  20. Jugend21's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    I think this is Rudolf Waldemar Brem's greatest moment. I know he's featured in a few other Fassbinder films, but he is so perfect in this role. It's pretty terrific watching him in this movie.

  21. occam's rating of the film Katzelmacher

    A very hateful and cynical (self-)critic, at Germany's post-war workers class. With the apparent lack of culture.
