Fassbinder’s Top 10

April 22 to April 30

In anticipation of our U.S. premiere of the new documentary Fassbinder: To Love Without Demands, Metrograph presents a series counting down the legendary German director’s ten favorite films, as published in 1982, a year before his death. Encompassing Hollywood melodrama and musical, B-movies and acknowledged European masterpieces, these eclectic selections are testament to the idiosyncratic versatility of this singular artist of the cinema, not to mention his perspicacity and foresight: it would take a couple more decades at least for many of these films (Johnny Guitar, Salò, Lola Montès) to be rightly, widely declared among the greatest films ever made.
