RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER RETROSPECTIVE
Love is Colder Than Death, 1969 -- 88 mins.
Fassbinder's first feature stars the director himself as a small-time pimp involved in a complex love triangle. Both comedic and darkly pessimistic, Love is Colder Than Death is a stark, powerful crime drama that introduces many of the director's major themes.
