SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12 11:30 AM; MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14 7 PM; THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17 9 PM. “A dystopian vision of 1989 that was filmed in 1982, involving leopard-skin suits, cross-dressing assassins, corporate conspiracy, porn stars, houseboats, and a fantastic droning-techno soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. The film is directed by Wolf Gremm and is notable historically for its star: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, in his final acting role. Fassbinder stars as Jansen, a disheveled cop who wears only one outfit through the entire film (the aforementioned leopard suit, which matches his gun’s grip and the interior of his car), smokes constantly and sweats astonishingly, all while trying to unravel a bomb plot... it’s completely bonkers and entirely charming.
