Fassbinder's best film.
Far from apprehending this effect as a felicitous esthetic touch, one simply gets the creeps from it. Veronika Voss is no doubt a peculiarly authentic last testament and premonition of oblivion, but there is no comfort or gratification in it.
Fassbinder's visual style is the perfect match for this subject.
A chilly, tough, wicked satire disguised as the sort of schmaltzy, black-and-white, 1950's melodrama.
The situation soon freezes into an inert, rather facile metaphor for America's postwar domination of the German soul.
It's a transfixing blend of old Hollywood, the Douglas Sirk-styled tropes Fassbinder adored so much, a powerful look at fading fame and addiction...
One of the most stylish of Fassbinder's many films.
This was the last film that Rainer Werner Fassbinder completed before his suicide.
Fassbinder's work here is muddy at best. His black and white cinematography limits his typically washed-out color palette while failing to connect us emotionally with the bygone era.
With a black-and-white cinematography that emulates the visual style of movies from the 1950s, this bleak story - the second of Fassbinder's BRD Trilogy - invests in a downbeat approach, icier than the other two, with an end that curiously parallels the director's own demise.
with an icy visual style even more marvelous than 'maria braun', this thinly disguised biopic of the downfall of a famous actress of the third reich is absolutely chilling to watch. fantastic high key b&w photography renders many scenes almost completely white, with odd lighting effects and fassbinder's eccentric musical choices reflecting our heroine's descent into madness. many many references for fans of 'sunset blvd'. enjoyed very much!!
Chilling! Fassbinder's visual technique complements the morphine induced highs and lows experienced by the star. A harrowing satire of the fickleness of the film industry, public perception, addiction, and the parasites that prosper through exploitation.
This is from the Criterion Collection, and like most films from the Criterion Collection it takes over half the movie to really get into it. I saw the The BRD Trilogy: Veronika Voss (1982) version. About a Morphine addict. Had english subtitles, Movie is in German. Its rather good.
