Veronika Voss - Tuesday February 26th

Veronika Voss
R.W. Fassbinder. Germany 1982. B&W. 104mins.

Usually overlooked in the noir genre (unlike Wilder's Sunset Boulevard, one of Fassbinder's influences for this film), it is nonetheless a masterpiece of new German cinema with all the hallmarks of classic noir - only better. If you know Fassbinder you know this, if not then what a great place to start.
