Can you please convince me to buy this?

That’s quite a fantastic dose of Fassbinder, at a great price. I’d buy it if I could watch PAL format. Ranked:

    I’d watch Maria Braun over and over if I owned it.

    Chinese Roulette is absurdly fun.

    Effie Briest and Satan’s Brew – Both remarkable experiences, from opposite ends of the Fassbinder scale.

    Fear Eats the Soul, Mother Kusters, and Fox and His Friends – All good, but bleak. Don’t watch them back to back!

    I don’t have much to say about Fear of Fear. It’s not bad.

Yeah, that was unduly harsh. I enjoyed it while I watched it.

I think I watched the whole thing under the impression that it was asking one question, and then it turned out it was asking some other question, but I was too lazy by that point to figure out what the question was.

I've already seen Fear Eats the Soul, but the fact that between you two, every single one of these has been endorsed makes me happy and motivated (and 25 pounds worse off). I wouldn't call it too bleak, though, it ends on a sad but hopeful note.

Was it hopeful? I was too deeply depressed to notice I guess. And Fox and His Friends is worse. :P

I'm having a Fassbinder double feature this weekend: The Stationmaster's Wife and Despair.

Ha, that’s what attracts me in film. Speaking of which, I was just reading this quote from Fassbinder:

“It isn't easy to accept that suffering can also be beautiful...it's difficult. It's something you can only understand if you dig deeply into yourself.”


I dug deep, and it turns out I’m like a matryoshka doll of sadness, all the way to the tiniest one. I don't think ice cream would help much. :P

ends on a much sharper note of longing for the impossible. The life and love Guido regrets is infinitely more desirable than anything I saw in La dolce vita. And death (if he is dead) is sort of the ultimate case of unattainablity. :P

Post Maiden's Voyage: More Fassbinder

Image
I’m up to twenty-three Fassbinders now, and, though I’ve featured several in this thread, it feels like a good time to pause for more
highlights. The truth is I’m more addicted than ever, and it's tempting to simply submerge myself in his crazy universe. Who needs other
movies when Fassbinder made everything, including costume drama and sci-fi? I may not fully understand why his films have such a hold
on me, but I know I have absolute confidence in his fevered brain. Has anyone ever made as much greatness in such a short period of time as he did 1978-80? Despair, 13 Moons, Maria Braun, Third Generation and 15½ hours of Berlin Alexanderplatz; all so fantastic!


Image Image

Chinese Roulette isn't a recent discovery, but I needed to rewatch it before I could describe it. The first time I was overwhelmed by the style and crazy comedy, and that's certainly a big part of what I love about this one. Gabriel, the plagiarizing, eavesdropping theologian/servant, is a fantastic character, a constant source of black-comic dissonance. And the climactic parlor game with its absurd amounts of hostility and suspense is always fun to watch. But this time I was struck more by the sadness consuming every character. Their shared histories may be unexplained, but the emotional baggage is plain for everyone to see – the regret, hate, anger, and, perhaps, even love.


    Image Image

The Stationmaster’s Wife is such a pretty film, and it starts off so sweetly: newlyweds in love, in a beautiful house with lots of murals and mirrors… What more could anyone want? Even as it became obvious that they were real human beings with some rather big flaws, I was totally unprepared for what would follow. “They still have each other,” I thought. “Everything can be worked out, forgiven, discussed, at least, like civilized people.” But 'flaws' become betrayals, people turn out to be vicious, actions are tragically irreversible. And that ending is one of the saddest I’ve ever seen.


Image Image

Why did no one tell me that Fassbinder made a film starring Dirk Bogarde and adapted by Tom Stoppard from a Nabokov novel?! I had to find it for myself, after all this time – time that could have been better spent watching and re-watching Bogarde plotting murder in ridiculous pajamas, mmm! Despair is a comedy that’s almost as broad as Satan’s Brew, but with a much more serious, political edge. It has a terrific, over-the-top performance by Bogarde and plenty of other pleasures as well. It looks scrumptious, like the candy they’re always eating, and, with the pastel colors and plentiful nudity, it’s impossible not to be reminded of Greenaway. Plus I love all the little games played on the theme of perception and mis-identification: the movie with the twins, the insurance salesman who looks like Freud, the worker mistaken for an actor, the employee with the same name as the Chancellor, the mis-remembered painting, the merged reflections. It’s the best blind-buy I’ve made in forever!

For you, Effi Briest definitely. But I don't know if you have access. I think you'd like The Stationmaster's Wife also.

How crazy do you like your comedy?

A crazy comedy that I love would be Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. A crazy comedy that I hate would be Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me. Does that give you some parameters to work with?

He can't watch it, anyway. But, why? It's a beautiful performance by Schygulla.

Hey, have you seen Lili Marleen? It's so... strange. And un-Fassbinder-like. The way it jumps from scene to scene with a heavy-handed score reminds me of Zulawski, and the weird, low-budget montage of war footage reminds me of Sokurov. And yet, none of it in a good way! Plus it has the worst subtitles I've ever seen. "Let's eat. I'm dying of hungry."

Haha, now I want to know what he makes of it!

I'm basing this on his extreme distaste for Hou's Flowers of Shanghai, among other films.
