- Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Rainer Werner Fassbinder
In his brief, chaotic life Fassbinder made 43 feature films and the 15 ½ hour television masterpiece Berlin Alexanderplatz. One of the most controversial artists to emerge from the New German Cinema, Fassbinder’s wildly creative films display a provocative undercurrent used to generate discussion and convey certain libertarian philosophies. Always engrossing, Fassbinder makes certain that his action and dialog are consistently unpredictable. We highly recommend Querelle, The Third Generation, Beware a Holy Whore, Ali: Fear Eats the Soul and the heartbreaking gay melodrama Fox & His Friends.
