  1. Nachtreich's rating of the film The Third Generation

  2. mubianer's rating of the film The Third Generation

    I liked the melancholic West Berlin atmosphere.

  3. Diderot's rating of the film The Third Generation

    Probably Fassbinder's most narratively obscure work as well as one of the most polished-feeling, showing the strongest Godardian influence of his later films and blending it with Bresson, Schopenhauer, Touch of Evil, and Flamingo Road (those last two more obliquely). Others have mentioned it, but the sound design here is really something to marvel at.

  4. ammar's rating of the film The Third Generation

  5. AdrianM.'s rating of the film The Third Generation

  6. El Biffo's rating of the film The Third Generation

    "Capitalism invented terrorism to force the state to protect it better"

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film The Third Generation

    Oeuvre de dénonciation parfois agaçante dans ses propos qui fustigent les petits révolutionnaires de "papa / maman", et la manipulation systématique du pouvoir en place qui dirige ou incite à l'agitation pour mieux réprimer... www.cinefiches.com

  8. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film The Third Generation

    Absolutely great cast. It renews with Fassbinder's passion for secrecy, the nihilism and the gangs in a cold and normative modern society. My favorite Fassbinder's film after "Love is colder than death", "The chinese Roulette" and his ultimate masterpiece "Effi Briest".

  9. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Third Generation

    RWF on fire! Goddamn! Scathing, incisive, hilarious, probably controversial if only because it's accurate a.f. (now as much as ever). That, plus a dizzying mastery of form - not just form - a *deluge* of form. And layers of meaning in every instant, though not in the same way as in the equally saturated but devastating 13 Moons; this is RWF playing. And it's delightful. More watches required.

  10. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Third Generation

    Very strange for a movie about the RAF. I say this not specifically because it's more interested in non-lateral evocation but because it's consciously distanced from the root members of the RAF, their intentions, their humanity, etc. The characters and scenarios are like abstractions of their real-world counterparts, and they kind of lose all but their political bearing on topics that they're dependent on.

  11. J0NS's rating of the film The Third Generation

  12. Ethan's rating of the film The Third Generation

    Radical politics by way of Fassbinder, this is a real juicy film.

  13. Erik F.'s rating of the film The Third Generation

    Fassbinder at his most comic and frenetic. A grim good time.

  14. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film The Third Generation

    Intense and multilayered. I think there are references to Rivette's use of conspiracies particularly in the casting of Bulle Ogier.

  15. Andrew Miller's rating of the film The Third Generation

    A deeply bitter, despairing film, even for Fassbinder. I loved the opening title sequence.

  16. Mihai Cristea's rating of the film The Third Generation

  17. Stevie's rating of the film The Third Generation

    Absolutely mental. Definitely needs repeat viewings to gain a greater appreciation. Spengler steals the film with his performance.

  18. Kiko, um cronópio's rating of the film The Third Generation

  19. Robert W Peabody III's rating of the film The Third Generation

    The Third Generation 1979 DIR Rainer Werner Fassbinder SCR Rainer Werner Fassbinder 105 Min THE WORLD AS WILL AND IDEA

  20. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film The Third Generation

    It's a little twisted... in a good way. (And DT is spot on again.)

  21. janitor_of_lunacy's rating of the film The Third Generation

    "Movies consist of 25 lies a second, and because everything is a lie, it's also the truth. And the fact that the truth is a lie... That becomes clear with every movie you watch. But in movies, ideas mask the lies and suggest that they are truth. That's the only real utopia for me, small though it may be."

  22. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Third Generation

    In 1967, JLG gave the call for revolution. Over a decade later, against a backdrop of violence and defeat, Fassbinder gave the response. A precise attack on 'designer terrorism' disguised as a chaotic mess of profane inter-titles (quoted directly from the walls of public toilets?) and bold alienation techniques. To call it is a masterpiece is an understatement! Fassbinder's funniest film is also his most inspired.

  23. Levent Güçer's rating of the film The Third Generation

  24. Greg S.'s rating of the film The Third Generation

    This will need several rewatches. However the first viewing was enough convince me this film is more modern than most films from this past decade. The sense of confusion and paranoia are so cinematic( another poster called it a sensory overload) the plot seemed almost secondary. The constant confusion reflected the paradoxes of cooperate funded terrorism...and it's funny! Masterpiece unlike any other.
