Thoughts on Love is Colder Than Death

-A small-time gangster, his hitman friend, and his hooker girlfriend, bullshit around for 85 minutes.

-The first feature film of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, noted German filmmaker and Magnificent Bastard.

-This might be a lovely time for people who have seen his latter films, picking out the early trademarks and whatnot. But I have not, so it was all a bit slow. Not nearly as bad as some other types, but there are long, pointless pauses and a rather inaccessible plot. Amusing in bits, sometimes really funny, other times noticeably homoerotic (it really is), with off sound but superb acting.

-I'm so bad at reviewing lately.
