Storyline

Though he never actually worked in Hollywood, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, who died in 1982 at the age of 36, was influenced greatly by Amercian studio films of the 1950s and the convention of melodrama (the link most often mentioned is Douglas Sirk). 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. The proceedings are liberally sprinkled with clips from Fassbinder's films, as well as glimpses of a theater company in Los Angeles that specializes in performing the director's plays.

vain documentary by former Fassbinder actor Ulli Lommel
7 July 2002 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

This is more of a documentary on actor-turned-director and former Fassbinder associate Ulli Lommel than a film on Fassbinder or his experiences with Hollywood. Lommel is center of the mise en scene most of the time, interviewing former colleagues or talking about his experiences with RWF, posing in front of the camera, wearing a Highlander-style coat and a cowboy hat. Lots of talk, little information - quite superfluous.
