Critic Reviews for Fox and His Friends
This melodramatic fable of emotional extremes is sharp and precise-nowhere more than in Fassbinder's attention to the price of domestic comforts and industrial necessities.
It excludes all life that is not within the very narrow intentions of its author. Its pores have been painted over.
Here is a movie about characters who define themselves by their sexuality, but the movie doesn't. It takes the sexuality as a given, and defines them by their values and morals.
This 1975 melodrama by Rainer Werner Fassbinder is one of his better middle-period films.
the central relationship fits the dramatic requirements and dutifully fulfills its mission of acting as a microcosm for the insidious nature of social and economic manipulation, but it never feels real
Fassbinder gives an excellent performance as the abused Fox, and the direction is of his usual high standard.
Audience Reviews for Fox and His Friends
An interesting portrait of love and wealth from an in form Fassbinder.
Another successful allegory in which Fassbinder illustrates again his main recurrent theme of the exploitability of feelings through a sharp and painfully sad story about how love can be used as a most efficient instrument of manipulation, humiliation and repression.
one of fassbinder's more accessible films, it's the story of a sideshow carny who wins the lottery and tries to move up in society by means of a refined lover and his snobby circle. sadly, fox is only being used by his so called friends. fassbinder plays the lead very effectively here. he'll break your heart
