    The thing with Fassbinder is that I often find his films dated and way too bleak (Buñuel, Godard and other great directors have more humour than him), but then I find myself thinking about them weeks later. Martha also have amazing cinematography and, like often with Fassbinder, staging.

  5. EdieEmm's rating of the film Martha

    At best, we're only ever mitigating the toxicity inherent to social relations. At worst we're pretending it doesn't exist... RWF calls out our hidden inner Marthas & Helmuts; makes us face them. (He, above everyone, lived in the reality of his sadomasochistic dualism). Saw this on Dec 6th, which (in Canada) emphasized the repercussions of society's gendering of the dynamic. Powerfully unpleasant. Böhm was smarmy a.f.

    This poor woman suffers so much. And it's fucking hilarious.

  13. Filmofil Tom's rating of the film Martha

  14. Vincent T's rating of the film Martha

    If I usually witness how much Fassbinder's films anger the audience (for reasons I don't know what), this one in particular has received intense disgust for its treatment of the leading female character and its portrayal of her ruthless husband. A tough one to like, but for me it improved after a second viewing. The ending is particularly curious because you can't exactly know whose view you are looking through.

  15. Dignan's rating of the film Martha

    Terrific film starring Jian Ghomeshi. Fassbinder consistently captures the complexity of the human psyche and the toxic dynamic in human relationships. Like several of Fassbinder films, the medicalization of human suffering is a theme with close-ups of his ubiquitous Valium 10. Fassbinder is useful in showing societal constructs as largely responsible for "diagnosable" behaviour and the danger of medical intervention

  16. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film Martha

    Martha marries Lothar Matthäus, but he's an asshole. Very impressive work by the director, but in any case Lothar didn't deserve the world cup at Italia 90.

  17. joana geraldo's rating of the film Martha

  18. Odile~'s rating of the film Martha

    Seducción como antesala de la dominación.

  19. kartina obskura's rating of the film Martha

    a perfect film to watch 1 month before the wedding!

  20. Stevie's rating of the film Martha

    I was completely taken aback by Martha as I was not expecting such a gripping psychological thriller. I'd presumed it to be a lesser film from Fassbinder's huge oeuvre. It is not. It is tense and horrifying. A strong 8/10.

  21. DeedeeAssise's rating of the film Martha

    This one will be hard to forget... and to put Franz from Sisi the Empresss as the hangman is purely evil

  22. rowdyman's rating of the film Martha

    Fassbinder's Martha is Richard Brody's DVD pick of the week. He discusses it here: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/movies/2011/04/dvd-of-the-week-martha.html

  23. CANNED LUCIDITY's rating of the film Martha

    Didn't know what to expect...loved it. Absolutely deranged and utterly hysterical portrait of a sadomasochistic relationship.
