RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER RETROSPECTIVE
Veronika Voss (Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss), 1982 -- 105 mins.
Veronika Voss tells the story of a once-beloved Third Reich-era starlet who now lives in obscurity in Munich. One of Fassbinder's most visually dazzling works, his penultimate film is a probing look into the darkest recesses of Germany's postwar prosperity.
