Many people have perceived Fassbinder as merely a social commentator, "The Third Generation" proves he's an artist.
[A] hectic, funny, prismatically intricate political thriller ...
Episodic, aurally and visually cluttered, and calculated to irritate, but like most Fassbinder films, worth a second look.
There no longer can be any doubt about it: Rainer Werner Fassbinder is the most dazzling, talented, provocative, original, puzzling, prolific and exhilarating film maker of his generation. Anywhere.
... the film is not dispossessed of Fassbinder's absorbing narrative capacity, here more given to caricature and the unreal tone than usual. [Full review in Spanish]
As always, the beauty of a Fassbinder film is in the telling -- the camera work is stunning, the color and the music superbly complement the story line and the director's chilling sense of irony is apparent.
A parallel vaudeville of anger and disillusionment, a Dziga Vertov Group revue done over by Macke
A minor curiosity.
A must see for its underlying reasoning.
