It is far from perfect, but a rewarding experience nonetheless - amd a much better film than the derivative "Lola" and the convoluted "Veronika Voss" that preceded it. It is destined to become a cult classic.
Except for some things that Miss Moreau does, Querelle is not only humorless but also uncharacteristically witless.
Because the film is an experiment, it often seems disjointed or incomprehensible, but more than anything it marks a radical turning point in narrative filmmaking.
It's probably worth a look only for Fassbinder's most die-hard fans.
Stays faithful to Genet's lurid poetry.
A sour melodrama
A real debacle.
Doubtless not a masterpiece, the movie nevertheless puts words, sounds, and images on screen, with welcome creative energy, that have never paraded there before -- or, if in fact they're always on screen, never before so openly.
Fassbinder's last work only proves that he wasn't really in tune with Genet's vision to adapt one of his stories, since this is only a convoluted, aimless mess packed with ridiculous, pseudo-poetic dialogue and unable to make you feel any connection with its characters.
It's as if Andre Gide directed a film written by Tom of Finland and cast by the Village People. Striking visuals. Avant garde, to say the least!
A director's wicked sexual fantasies writen in Shakesperian terms and photographed in lush Technicolor hues. A shame the characters' only motivations seem to be following their hormonal instincts and find revenge and redemption through screwing.
Not a film for everyone, but a film that I would recomend to anyone who is a fan of film. If that makes sense?
There is SO much going on in this film that repeated views are necessary to really appreciate it all.
While the subject matter may be uncomfortable for some (no pun intended), the underlying theme's should be pause for thought for anyone who dares to examine them. Which is something that I always look for in a film and am thrilled on the rare ocassion when I find it.
