dir. Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Germany, 1970, 35mm, b/w, German w/ English subtitles, 80 min.

The German-born American GI, Ricky (Karl Scheydt), returns to Munich from Vietnam and is promptly hired as a contract killer. Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s experimental noir is a subversive, self-reflexive gangster movie full of unexpected asides and stylistic flourishes, and features an audaciously bonkers final shot, as well as memorable turns from many of the director’s rotating gallery of players.
