The script to this movie seems like it's hand-written to be used in those tumblr/fb posts of movie screenshots with subtitles showing the profound dialogue, and that isn't a bad thing.
Fassbinder's camera navigates one room so fluidly and masterfully. The lighting and the way he blocks his scenes is insanely good. Also the costume design is of course fantastic.
Margit Carstensen guides us through her room of isolation and bourgeois angst masterfully as Petra von Kant, in a performance so perfect for such a layered character, hiding behind any facade she can to hide true feeling. It's not until the character is in her bare, true self that her feelings are revealed. Simply brilliant.
Can't wait to peep more Fassbinder, whatta start.
