Rainer Werner Fassbinder Bondsrepubliek Duitsland, 1981

FilmEdie's rating of the film Lola

About as subtle as its colour palate... Fassbinder at his most accessible, if least nuanced and complex. Gorgeous, hilarious, scathing indictment of post-war Germany in particular (riffing cleverly on the old Dietrich German cinema classic Blue Angel), and the hypocrisy inherent to capitalism, in general. Not my favourite Fassbinder. But lots of fun.
