Among Fassbinder's most visually attractive films, and yet the sparseness that occupies every shot (extending to the script) is a great device for establishing open spaces that you can feel. I'm sure this is all very conducive to analysis, but analysis is not the first thing I feel like conducting so shortly after having seen it. The fact is, it is a very simple film, and much of its' power comes from not beating around the bush.

The open ending is what makes this a masterpiece. Racism is not just beaten. Everyone is flawed. I felt intense weltschmerz while watching this film. I can easily see why this is among Aki Kaurismäkis favorites.

Obvious and heavy-handed, it works less as a realist film and more as a sketch that satirically laments the crushing effect society has on the individual and how every group -even a couple- is built on power play. It's fittingly tragic that only the freest soul in the film admits to care about what others think. But, of course, this is also a love story: it's all about how Mira's vulnerability and Salem's stoicism create this little society of tenderness and manipulation.

(Rewatch) In light of certain recent events, this feels more poignant than ever. As it was, it's probably the only Fassbinder film with any real sense of warmth or humanism, which makes it more approachable and consequentially why it's one of his most popular. What i didn't appreciate before was how remarkably aesthetically accomplished it actually is as well (it practically looks like a Kaurismaki film!) The intertextuality with Sirk is here of course, but i think this transcends mere homage.
