Ali: Fear Eats the Soul
1974, Not rated, 94 min. Directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Starring Brigitte Mira, El Hedi Ben Salem, Barbara Valentin, Irm Hermann and R.W. Fassbinder.
Essential Cinema: The Bitter Tears of Rainer Werner Fassbinder: Fassbinder consciously borrows the melodramatic storyline of Douglas Sirk’s All That Heaven Allows to create one of his very best movies. Fassbinder brings his best Brechtian impulses to his story about the culturally doomed love affair between a washerwoman in her 60s and an Arab immigrant half her age.
