Even Fassbinder's straightforward films are delights. A totally literal, mostly just 'amusing', story of a visiting troop of Pioneers & the (unconvincingly) teenaged girls they meet. Over-the-top but formative teen dramas, as in later 90s films starring people like River Phoenix. Obvs a little queered up, re e.g. 'shore leave' & whores, because RWF. Darker; only the campiest, most deviant tropes... But that flow! 3.5
