Critic Reviews for Kamikaze '89

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

It's completely bonkers and entirely charming.

June 2, 2016 | Full Review…

When the increasingly knotty conspiracy plot that motors Kamikaze '89 grows too unintelligible or dull, Gremm has the good sense to cut to the film's greatest set piece ...

May 31, 2016 | Full Review…

The combination of dazzlingly detailed production design and Fassbinder's final performance make it hard to tears one's eyes away from the spectacle that is Kamikaze 1989.

November 20, 2017 | Full Review…

The mystery is silly and confusing but the film is entertaining, with Fassbinder dressed in a leopard-print suit and playing racketball in a police disco in his off hours.

The production design... is jaw-dropping for the full 100-odd minutes.

November 9, 2016 | Full Review…

For those rabid Rainer-maniacs who can't get enough of the late, great director, Kamikaze '89 is a must--if only to see Fassbinder in his leopard-skin suit. Others will probably find the goings-on rather trying.
