  1. EdieEmm's rating of the film Whity

    The shot in the opening credits w/ rose motif, to Peer Raben's genius theme song! RWF's (per)version of a spaghetti western (the making of which he depicted in Holy Whore) = something Italian (the Visconti-style grand, ornate flourish - a flow through the film matched exactly by Ballhaus’ camera) + something Old-West America (obscenely rich racists?). Magnificent but, as w/ Querelle, not a great intro to RWF. 3.75

  2. bryanvmh's rating of the film Whity

    Michael Ballhaus is the only redeeming factor of this movie. Is blackface okay if an "arty" white dude is directing?

  3. Ethan's rating of the film Whity

    This is everything you would expect a Fassbinder western to be. Also, Tarantino had to of gotten inspiration for Django Unchained from this movie.

  4. 5000yearoldbogmummy//Rhett's rating of the film Whity

    Interesting pseudo-western, at times a smidge opaque (thematically, I mean) but always a visual pleasure and snappy/compelling.

  5. fearraigh's rating of the film Whity

    Not one of Fassbinder's better films but an occasionally interesting take on the Western. At the rate he worked, there were bound to be films that didn't quite measure up.

  6. Catherine Abecassis's rating of the film Whity

    comment oublier Fassebinder, l'idole de ma jeunesse.. pourtant ce film inconnu ne vaut pas le détour, ses films ont mal vieilli. quel dommage !

  7. Caillouquiroule's rating of the film Whity

    Un Fassbinder dont je n'avais jamais entendu parler. A tort sans doute tant on retrouve tout ce qui fait son cinéma subversif et cynique, s'amusant avec un genre dont il connaît les règles et s'en affranchit comme toujours.

  8. Clara C.'s rating of the film Whity

    Ovni du Western, étrange, cruel mais dramatique et même poétique. Une très belle étude de la condition de l'esclave, de l'homme qui ne voulait pas être libre, de l'humain qui ne veut pas être réduit à un homme dans une société régie par la loi du Talion.

  9. Paola's rating of the film Whity

    La cinta maldita de Fassbinder, absurda, provocadora y kitsch. Ciertamente no estamos ante un film esencial en su carrera, pero como anécdota es uno de los episodios más divertidos de la cinematografia fassbinderiana y que posteriormente se materializa en Atención a esa prostituta tan querida, una verdadera delicia para los admiradores del genio alemán.

  10. El Chaparral's rating of the film Whity

    Estética = 5. Historia = 3

  11. Nicole Elmer's rating of the film Whity

    I just watched this film last night. I'm stuck somewhere between really liking it, and not sure if I would ever watch this film again.

  12. tertzak's rating of the film Whity

    the more likely influence for that honey for petzi album title?

  13. T. J. Harman's rating of the film Whity

    A great "subversive western" from Fassbinder that subverts history and movies. Underrated.

  14. MISS RICHIE's rating of the film Whity

    This movie is about one of the strangest movies I've ever seen which means I dig it.

  15. Kays Vanderest's rating of the film Whity

    While admittedly convoluted and seemingly unfocused at parts, this offering from Fassbinder has more than enough spirit, emotion and skill behind it to land five stars.

  16. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Whity

    This is crazy fucked up! Fassbinder doing a western is too diabolical for words. I just love how perverse the family is. Right from the get go, Micheal Ballhaus's cinematography is unmatched. Watching whity getting pushed to the breaking point is such a joy to watch! Though, its amazing he put up with the family at all.

  17. Eloi MV's rating of the film Whity

    Excellent Fassbinder with amazing camera work (especially 2 mindblowing shots). Definitly worth an attentive watch.
