Audience Reviews for Fear of Fear

  • Jun 01, 2016
    A startling look at depression. As Fassbinder has matured, so have his films.

    A lesser-known work by Fassbinder, but it is equally as brilliant as his more popular films. The story centers on a woman who suffers from postpartum depression after giving birth to her second child. She begins to get these intense feelings of fear, and eventually resorts to Valium and Cognac to numb these feelings. Her hostile mother-in-law and sister-in-law do not help her situation, and her husband may very well not exist. She seeks solace in the doctor across the street, but even he does not have the capability to help her for very long. Fassbinder's films tend to end in tragedy, and by the way this film moves, from the very beginning you suspect that it will. <i>Fear of Fear</i> is perfectly paced, and the characters are all very captivating. Thrown in are a few Fassbinder regulars, which is always a treat! Any true Fassbinder fan is sure to enjoy this film.
