Fucky Film Review!

Rainer Werner Fassbinder 1969

What if I say it’s hypnotic, rather than boring?  The film lulled me into a kind of mesmerized catatonic state during which I am said to have laughed and drooled at all the appropriate moments. Stylish lowlifes walk in and out of a handful of frames – the railing in front of the building, the tavern, Elisabeth’s dining room, Rosa’s bedroom – often with the intention of lackluster copulation. Eventually a foreigner enters the picture and the Germans welcome him with not-so-open arms.
