  1. Dalibor's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    Bavarian "Bande à part" is such an obvious students' fascination towards contemporary French cinema of the decade, falling incongruously behind and standing solely as a showcase of Fassbinder's early avant-guards. As such it is gutsier but less refined than "Katzelmacher", seeming like a set of emotion-less sequences but eager to overstate each and every one.

  3. redux's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    Stiff reiteration of the "cool criminals and their babe" trope. A week after watching it, the only thing I remember is finding RWF as a toughie an eyesore.

  4. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    rather unremarkable, even though i loved that there was a character named "erica rohmer." but that is sort of to my point — fassbinder's first feature length just feels like a stan 's ode to many influences.

  5. Homayoun Hajikhani's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

  6. Film Maudit's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    “If it weren't for the girl, Erika Rohmer...” RWF’s cold debut feature and a love letter to La nouvelle vague and film noir. The shape of Fass to come!

  7. Adam GR's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    He was 23 when he made this? The filmmaking is eager, deft, and evidently equipped with stage knowledge. The frame constantly contains tableaux that emphasize the body/actor. The sets look sparse and homemade but convincing. Sometimes the music enhances, sometimes it grates. The camera celebrates Ulli Lommel quite well. Le samouraï vibes indeed.

  8. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

  9. AugusteB's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    Unlike the other movie from the same year Götter der Pest, this one annoyed me after a while. Showing toxic masculinity per se left me a bit weary. Is the final word of the film really "Nutte" (whore)?

  10. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    How many did he make in 13 years? My new goal is re-watching RWF's every summer. Because it's clearly worth it.

  11. P D Dawson's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    Fassbinder's first film is by no means his best, yet it may just be the purest example of his philosophy on what cinema can and should be. He doesn't believe in fast cuts or close-ups, at least not at the start of his career, but rather long shots and slow drawn out sequences. This leaves room for contemplation and reflection, and the script, apparently written on the fly, also gives space to breathe and just indulge

  12. petit astronaute's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

  13. Algitya's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    4.5 for the lovely and timelessly exquisite moves of expressionism.

  14. Tornasol's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    Tiempos muertos. Tragedia fría y tranquila. Fassbinder se vale de espacios vacíos que permiten el libre movimiento de los personajes; pero, simultáneamente, estos espacios reflejan lo frío del relato, la monotonía de todo lo que acontece.

    petite bourgeoisie Radicalism :|

  16. Rebecca DeLucia's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    a stark penumbra of callous assignees very serious about their armed non-revolution ("how vulgar"), where the syndicate beggars and the syndicate grows. audio as if heard on your back from a dank floor.

  17. kinotopia's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

  18. EdieMaas's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    Maybe the best movie ever made.

  19. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    More inspired moments than I had anticipated. On the whole better than I had anticipated.

  20. S Campbell's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    Early Fassbinder is fine but the later work would become the high points of new German Filmmaking

  21. FISCHER's rating of the film Love Is Colder Than Death

    Premier long métrage de Rainer Werner Fassbinder, une déviation intéressante du genre policier à laquelle a collaboré avec bonheur Jean-Marie Straub... www.cinefiches.com
