Movie Info

German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder died of a drug overdose on June 10, 1982, before his last film, Querelle was edited. This documentary is both about the filming of Querelle -- a sailor of that name whose love life left nothing to be desired -- and about director Fassbinder's working techniques and philosophy. While actors and workers comment on the filming of Querelle, a 14-minute interview with Fassbinder taped eight hours before he died was supposed to convey the first element, his own beliefs and working methods. Fassbinder's mother had the interview pulled by court order, leaving the Wizard of Babylon without the benefit of the wizard's own chemistry. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

All Critics (1)

It is, by turns, moody, fascinating, boring, enigmatic and revealing -- much like Fassbinder himself.
