There is no film-by-film analysis of his major works, which include "The Marriage of Maria Braun" and "Berlin Alexanderplatz," or the connection from one to the next.
Thomsen culls wisely from Fassbinder's filmography to illustrate the kino-giant's abiding themes, patricide and masochism among them.
To be fair, [Director Christian Braad Thomsen] makes judicious use of clips from Fassbinder's films, but "Fassbinder: To Love Without Demands" would be far less fascinating without the 1978 Fassbinder interview.
... it is a good first step for those who do not know anything about Fassbinder and his work. [Full review in Spanish]
To Love Without Demands attempts to reconcile Fassbinder's complexities by essaying his emotional landscape: his childhood, his family, and the relationships he shared with his collaborators.
Thomsen's is a confused, partial, awkwardly constructed tribute that is an interesting addition to the mass of commentary on Fassbinder.
Offers enough fine material and organizes them with enough intelligence to create a many-pieced psychological portraiture of one of the most intriguing filmmakers who's ever lived.
Though some may find strange that Hannah Schygulla is only briefly mentioned, this is a very interesting documentary made with love about one of the most important and prolific directors of all time, and it focuses mostly on his fantastic body of work, themes and approach.
