Angst vor der Angst

Rainer Werner Fassbinder Bondsrepubliek Duitsland, 1975

This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Fear of Fear

A high tragic ride through depression, aniexty, and the normalcy of life! Shapes of cassavettes seeps through the narrative but this is a darker beast than anything cassavette's depicted. This is more horror than most horror films. Poor Margot is trapped within circumstance but the audience doesn't even know what to do. Maybe just freak out and listen to Leonard Cohen with her! Once again, Fassbinder made madness!
