I got it pretty early on. Most of the film felt like an endurance test--can you continue to walk along with this oblivious or desperate guy who is so obviously being taken advantage of. Exquisitely shot, to be sure, but the characterization of the lead lacked enough to make the long journey worthwhile.

I admire Fassbinder's honesty in how he saw human beings - complete with their ugly sides, complexities and imperfections - but because his motives are usually clear from the get-go, his films tend to overstay their welcome. Here's hoping that his oeuvre doesn't fall under the category: once you've seen one, you've seen them all.

In this misanthrope's version of Sirkian melodrama, with all the trappings of Anger, a working class lead played by Fassbinder strikes it rich, falls in with a circle of old bourgeois queers, and gets positively eaten alive. Fucking awesome.

and what friends indeed. the title is like the final icy footnote on a film that avoids cheap sentiment instead aiming for the cold and matter-of-fact (meanwhile the sirkian colours surrounding are warm and intoxicating). the last scene is gorgeously shot, harsh and rather striking.

"Make no mistake, this is the real Queer as Folk, but for all of Fassbinder's gripes with an elite gay culture's many sexual hang-ups, Fox and His Friends is first and foremost a riveting evocation of Social Darwinism in action." - Ed Gonzalez

A rather simple and obvious telling of a working-class fellow trying to fit in the upper class tier. I thought the ending might've been bad, but it turned out to be quite the striking image.

Fassbinder's sob story about an illbred homosexual sideshow performer, "Fox, the Talking Head", who lucks into a lottery jackpot and is bled dry by his deceitful, prissy, upper-middle-class lover. Fassbinder reproduces some right-sounding, catty, below-the-belt dialogue in the homosexual social circle, but this is merely a sidelight of the movie, a bonus. Essentially he uses homosexuality as a means of equalizing the characters, so as to move the focus away from the Sex War to the Class War.

Biting attack on ultra conformist bourgeois gays, darkly hilarious, moving and, as usual for Fassbinder in his Sirkian melodrama era, gorgeously filmed.
