The bloated pinnacle of New German Cinema, and among Fassbinder's last and decidedly his best work. I've discussed before that there's a tenuous link between Fassbinder's prolific work and the quality of work and this is an excellent example. It took five years and three restarts to finish this mini-series. The episodes vary from profound to profoundly dull, but by the end of it, should you stick to it, you may feel as emotionally downtrodden as Biberkopf himself, for that, this is effective.

Well, this more or less lives up to its reputation as the Ultimate Feel-Bad Experience, i'll give it that much. Yet despite the not undeserved acclaim, i can't really bring myself to consider it one of my favorites of Fassbinder's, less because of any single substantial flaw than because 16 hours is just a hell of a lot of Fassbinder to take, and is almost inevitably a bit uneven despite the talent involved, and i'd be lying if it didn't seriously drag at times (on top of being a huge drag).

There is something very very German in this movie, like all other movies of Fassbinder, Biberkopf is the perfect protype of the lower-middle class German citizen who sways between prosperity and misery, virtue and vice, vividness and boredom. In that sense the plot shares the general theme of the antagonism of the good and evil in the German tragic drama and Fassbinder tries to emphasize the everyday dullness of the German life despite the everchanging modernist background.

Fassbinder's mammoth, dreamlike portrait of a derelict man-baby and the whores, criminals, and drunks he associates with. Franz's inability to keep things straight and narrow seems to be both a personal failure and symptomatic of a greater systemic problem, in which the German people have been rendered broken and infantile, their eyes barely half open; easy targets for abuse and manipulation. It's no surprise, then, to see why the average German might have embraced his/her National Socialism...

An effective summary of this masterpiece would be nearly impossible to do - it is intensive. We witness the dynamics of sadomasochistic relationships and the bleak way of life taken on in Berlin in the Weimar era. There are countless parallels you can pull from this intricately woven tale, and it demands analyzation. This is not something to be taken lightly. Beautifully shot, incredible mise en scene and every actor involved delivers a deeply engrossing performance. An entire world is here.

O son bölüm, benim sinema yolculugum adina unutulmaz bir deneyimdi. (13 part'in ardindan geldigi zaman anlamlaniyor tabii.) Renklerin ve isigin müthis kullanimiyla yaratilan o puslu, kasvetli dünyanin içine girmemek mümkün degil. Gottfried John ve Barbara Sukowa'nin oyunculuklari muhtesem! Ayrica "dis ses"in en çok yakistigi filmlerden.

The look is quite unusual: a mix of soft-focus shots where everything seems to glow & sparkle, some coarse, super-grainy telephoto-looking shots, and some flat, neutral-coloured, painting-looking shots. It really creates a dreamlike effect. The sheer length of the work is put to good use, making it one of the few films I can think of with the scope of a good novel, but the narrative keeps a pretty clear focus and the pacing isn't particularly slow -- it's just really long.

Really fascinating and accessible story that feels like reading a wonderful novel. With the runtime Fassbinder has time to explore a multitude of themes, from individual ones like love and liberty, to social ones like poverty and politics. There are times when it's a bit of a drag but most of the time the human and social drama keeps you hooked. Then there's the epilogue which has a totally different style but works pretty well in its own way.
