Fear eats the soul

"Happiness is not always fun."

Lately I've been reviewing Fassbinder's films. I loved The Third Generation as a teen, so I started seeing all his films on tv (once there were good films in tv). Good to see it again (i remembered the story and mood, but had forgotten the virtuoso direction). Now I'm on Fear Eats the Soul, which is directed in a far more subtle way, so one's completely drawn to the characters and drama. Nice he made so many films. And The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant...
