With actor-turned-filmmaker Ulli Lommel as host and guide (he appeared in Fassbinder's very first feature, Love Is Colder Than Death, in 1969), documentary filmmaker Robert Fischer conducts a tour of Hollywood today, pausing to chat with cinematographer Michael Ballhaus and actress Hanna Schygulla # both charter members of Fassbinder's tight-knit stock company of technicians and players # as well as Wim Wenders, who found the toehold in the studio system that Fassbinder never had.

Pleasant, informative documentary
8 November 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

German director Ulli Lommel and Robert Fischer have fashioned a very likable documentary on Fassbinder, with a lot of humor and insight into Fassbinder's life. It plays as a labor of love, made by people who really loved Fassbinder and knew him personally.
