"Moons," in fact, is suspiciously easy to kiss off. It can be tedious and silly. Yet Fassbinder is too brilliant to be dismissed.
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.
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.
It's a passionate and messy film portraying loneliness, societal cruelties and victimization as powerful as its ever been presented on the screen.
Far-fetched and ultimately small, Fassbinder ties to put a metaphysical and cosmological wrapper arond all of this, leading to a very muddy experience.
One bizarre film, even for Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
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.
Fassbinder uses a personal loss as starting point for another depressing story about exploitation that doesn't dare offer any easy answers, even though the result this time feels also arbitrary, with his usual cold, detached approach leaving little room for empathy.
