I know, I know Bill. I really wanted to take the time and give detailed thoughts on each film when I posted the director list, but like my long ago desire to write long reviews of all his films and put together some kind of fawning tribute web site, I just never found the time.

The last of my top 5 directors to receive one of these threads. The man was a genius and it is my fervent wish that one day he will be held in the same regard as Bergman, Kurosawa, Fellini, Truffaut, etc. He would only be 60 years old now. Who knows how many more treasures he would have give us had he not succumbed to the fears that consumed his own soul?

Own: 28 (The most DVD's I have from any one director. Querelle is the only one I've seen I don't own and I would probably buy any future release blind)

I would dearly love to see all of his films.

Just saw a 16mm print of Beware a holy whore last night. What a piece of junk. Get on with it already. Stupid gay director (referring to the character within the film).

"Herr R" really is quite impressive, isn't it? I've been a Fassbinder fan for a long time, but I'd never seen this one prior to the recent DVD release (I do recall passing over the VHS many times back in college -- dunno why!).

I also saw "In a Year with 13 Moons" for the first time recently, and here is yet another Fassbinder film that belongs in the very top tier IMO. (Though I should say that my "top tier Fassbinder" defers somewhat from the real Fassbinder experts - for ex, I much prefer "Whity" and "Petra von Kant" to films like "The Merchant of Four Seasons" and "Effi Briest".)

Next up for me is "Chinese Roulette".
"Only one is a wanderer;
Two together are always going somewhere."
