The Little Chaos is another early short from Fassbinder that again shows glimpses of his immense talent that was yet to come. The story was more pedestrian in this film, essentially three door-to-door salespeople get fed up with their job and decide to rob a lady that turned them all away. This short has good acting and surprisingly accomplished directing. However the story didn't really offer anything other then a fun ten minute love letter to classical Hollywood cinema with a slight infusion of French New Wave.
In the end the short is fairly inconsequential, and not as memorable as the City Tramp (which also came in the Arrow Video release). However it's worth seeking out too see a more mischievous Fassbinder at work in front and behind the camera.
