Der amerikanische Soldat

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1970

Francisco R.'s rating of the film The American Soldier

There's a powerful spareness to it, and the ending shows an audacity that for a moment gave me the illusion that I saw an important work. But overall it made me think just how little Fassbinder thought of the medium.
