Critic Reviews for Mother Kusters Goes to Heaven
A witty, spare, beautifully performed political comedy.
No other director understands the strength of mediocre minds as does Fassbinder; when his films don't slip into derision, they can be ineffably moving, as this one is.
Fassbinder created another emotionally distancing, disturbing, yet always funny and fascinating picture.
Audience Reviews for Mother Kusters Goes to Heaven
Has pacing issues in the middle, but the viewer's patience is rewarded with two cracking endings.
Fassbinder's satire looks at the life of a middle-aged woman and her family after the death of her husband. Comic at times, dramatic others, and cynical throughout, with quiet desperation undercutting everything, here is a film bored with thinking and thought and the perception of better living through either.
