Love is Colder than Death (Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 1969): 56 Screenshots

I can't recommend this film by any means. As sometimes happens in Fassbinder films, the actors seem to have an almost contemptuous view of the audience, as if they couldn't care less if we liked the film or not. Maybe it was supposed to be 'Brechtian'! In any case, what you mainly notice is the flat line readings that any other director in the world would have rejected at first rehearsal. There's also hardly any story. But it does look great; hence I'm posting these screenshots. It's another one of those European art films better experienced as still images than as a moving film.
