Hans Gunther Pflaum
1993, 96 min.
This documantaryis an insightful and rich examination of the life and work of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, a true genius of German (indeed of world) cinema, filled with well-chosen excerpts from his many films and insightful comments from many of his collaborators. The film is divided into various sections profiling his life, career, and thoughts regarding the creative process.
Far superior to the later documentary Love, Life & Celluloid by long time Fassbinder editor Juliane Lorenz.
