Movie Info

Jeff (Lou Castel), a director, and his star actor (Eddie Constantine) are taking their time getting to the set of the movie they're currently working on. In the absence of these key figures, the film crew lacks a purposeful way to spend their time, so they drink heavily. However, as booze is downed and boredom and frustration set in, morale hits rock bottom. When Jeff and the male lead finally show, the director is enraged by his crew's slovenliness, and the production spirals into chaos.

    Fassbinder decides to go meta. It doesn't work.

    This Fassbinder film involves an almost complete film crew which is filled with snobs and queers. It wasn't a group I'd like to spend time with, but one that's fascinating to watch. While watching one can wonder if this was the film that inspired the casting for The Jersey Shore. The movie lives up to its title, which is what lured me in. Beware of a Holy Whore is no Surf Nazis Must Die, in which the title is superior to the film. The movie is stunning and gorgeous. The cinematographer Ballhaus (who's worked with Scorsese many times) did a good job on this film, but I hate the zoom ins on the faces. The acting was spot on and almost flawless, characters were consistent with themselves. I was expecting an orge throughout this whole film, I won't spoil if this happened or not.

    Fassbinder's (self-?)parody gets a bit monotonous after a while & feels forced & too obvious at times but overall the whole thing works somehow, Fassbinder & Castel are fun to watch

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Beware of a Holy Whore", a German film crew is staying in a Spanish hotel waiting for production to start. The star(Eddie Constantine) and director(Lou Castel) arrive but still there are problems like the checks bouncing, causing non-delivery of the necessary materials.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]With "Beware of a Holy Whore", Rainer Werner Fassbinder(he also stars) captures perfectly the chaos and energy of a set on a low budget film, especially one in a foreign country. The problem is that there are too many personal conflicts to count, and the whole scenario is decidedly unfocused with too many people screaming at one another.[/font]
