Far-fetched and ultimately small, Fassbinder ties to put a metaphysical and cosmological wrapper arond all of this, leading to a very muddy experience.

The subject invites easy compassion and pity, but Fassbinder's icy camera style keeps us at arm's length, calling up a much more complex response.

The story is as bizarre as Fassbinder himself seems to have been, cluing us into the darker side of his private life.

In Fassbinder's portrait of the gleamingly rebuilt Frankfurt as an emotionally devastated wasteland, Fascism-the need of some to dominate and of others to endure-comes off as a woeful constant of the heart.

One bizarre film, even for Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

It's a passionate and messy film portraying loneliness, societal cruelties and victimization as powerful as its ever been presented on the screen.

Comes down to a series of operatic examinations of questions pertaining to free will, chance, cause and effect, moral responsibility, self-sacrifice and spiritual atonement.
