The debut feature film from Fassbinder, this 1969 film was booed at the 19th Berlin International Film Festival, but has since been critically reappraised and is now recognised as an enduring classic from the revered director. Fassbinder himself stars as small-time pimp Franz, whose refusal to join a gangster syndicate turns both he and his mistress into targets. With duplicitous characters and numerous plot twists, the film is firmly rooted in cinematic mythology (primarily American crime and French New Wave), whilst also showcasing an early example of Fassbinder’s virtuoso style. Specially commissioned programme notes are available here.
