We'll Be Saying Goodbye To Fassbinder Forever

It's a sad day today as we mark the 37th anniversary of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's death -- he's now been dead as long as he was alive. Still the man created so much in his 37 years of life that we've hardly exhausted it all in his 37 years of death, and I doubt we ever will. Over at The Film Experience today I'm using his final film, the kaleidoscopicalllly queer Querelle, for this week's edition of "Beauty vs Beast" so click on over to vote. And after you do that I recommend you skim through our Querelle archives because hot damn we have posted a lot on this film over the years...

Even if I’m Italian I’m not Franco Nero’s biggest fan, but I like him in Querelle and I love the way he has spoken through the years about the film. Love also the anecdotes he shared about Fassbinder and the other projects the great German directors would have made with Nero (Rosa Luxembourg biopic co-starring Vanessa Redgrave, a movie based upon Bataille’s Le Blue du Ciel and Cocaine, featuring Italian beauty Ornella Muti)
