An insightful examination on the life and work of New German Cinema master Rainer Werner Fassbinder, "I Don't Just Want You to Love Me" presents friends, actors and collaborators of his many films talking about his work, creativity, behavior, personal life and the magic behind his several films made non-stop in a period of 15 years.Written by
A wonderfully insightful and idea rich examination into the life and work of Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
Filled with excellently chosen excerpts from his many films and insightful comments from many of his collaborators, the film is divided into various sections which profile his life, career, and thoughts regarding the creative process.
Anyone with the slightest interest in Fassbinder (and European cinema in general) will be captivated and much rewarded by this documentary, which is far superior to the later 'Love, Life & Celluloid' by long time Fassbinder editor Juliane Lorenz. This incisive examination is the perfect starting point for anyone who seeks to know more about the great director. Very highly recommended.
