Critic Reviews for Love Is Colder Than Death
Flouting conventional wisdom, Fassbinder stages scene after scene against a blank white wall as characters shuffle back and forth and almost disappear into the blinding haze.
Love Is Colder Than Death is heavily abstracted, with the characters more like models in a fashion layout than people in a story.
The attitudinizing New Wave thriller is turned into narcotized tableaux
This film is too stylized and protracted to interest the average crime-movie fan. It's recommended only for Fassbinder completists.
Audience Reviews for Love Is Colder Than Death
An interesting debut but ultimately a tad bland.
fassbinder's first feature gets off to a difficult start showing perhaps a bit too much of his roots in experimental theater. however i was soon hooked into it's existential gangster narrative, with fassbinder himself playing a tough guy in his favorite leather jacket. the bank heist at the end seems almost an afterthought. a kind of deconstruction of godard's 'bande à part'
Fassbinder's austere & stark debut, Feel the coldness & the blankness & of course beware of a jealous whore!! I actually liked this a bit better than Godard's Breathless
