But Willy's principles have become outright myths and lies, if ever they were truly otherwise, and he, his ever-loyal wife Linda, and his visiting sons Happy and Biff are together in one house as Willy's lies, dreams, job as a salesman--and, finally, his life--are all coming to an end

Welt am Draht = World on a wire by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

18 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in German and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dystopic science-fiction epic, World on a Wire is German wunderkind Rainer Werner Fassbinder's gloriously cracked, boundlessly inventive take on future paranoia. With dashes of Kubrick, Vonnegut, and Dick, but a flavor entirely his own, Fassbinder tells the noir-spiked tale of reluctant action hero Fred Stiller (Klaus Lowitsch), a cybernetics engineer who uncovers a massive corporate and governmental conspiracy. At risk? Our entire (virtual) reality as we know it. This long unseen three-and-a-half-hour labyrinth is a satiric and surreal look at the weird world of tomorrow from one of cinema's kinkiest geniuses
