The Devil in the Director's Chair

I know we were all in a bit of a daze last summer so I'll forgive you if you don't recall the time I shared the international trailer with you for Enfant Terrible, the forthcoming Rainer Werner Fassbinder bio-pic. Directed by Oskar Roehler and starring Oliver Masucci (from Dark and The Girlfriend Experience) as the legendary director of Querelle et cetera, the movie's already been out in a lot of the world before now but it's finally getting a U.S. release starting this Friday, so they've given us our very own trailer! Watch:

Who did you spot and feel giddy about spotting in the trailer? They all show up, all the characters we Fassbinder-Nerds have long adored -- it's a big feast for a very specific crowd, it is. Anyway I think I'll have more to say on this movie later this week... or possibly next week, when it actually hits NYC... so stay tuned. On that note, if you'd like to see the details of the film's exact roll-out which will stretch across the next several weeks (up through an apparent actual physical release in June) I will share that  (along with a handful of photos) right on after the jump...
