Whity by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in German and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fassbinder's sole western is set in the late 1800s in the perverse household of Ben Nicholson, his blonde trophy wife Katherine, and two sons, the sadistic Frank and brain-damaged Davy. Whity's mother Marpessa is the family cook, singing freedom songs in the kitchen, but Whity adores the family and puts up with enslavement to please them--until he falls in love with saloon-singer Hanna. Filmed in Spain on the same sets where Sergio Leone staged Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns, Fassbinder opts for engulfing décor, a lush, vibrant mise-en-scène, and wizard cinematographer Michael Ballhaus to help infuse the film with his distinct brand of melodramatic intensity
Pioneers in Ingolstadt by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in German and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of military engineers and soldier/laborers arrive in the small town of Ingolstadt, where they will begin the construction of bridge linking it directly with the rest of the country. Alma and Berta are housemaids who see the soldiers as more than a distraction: Berta wants desperately to believe in love, and Alma doesn't believe it can exist. The soldiers are bored, boozing and brawling during their free time, and coldly calculating about the improbability of love. Adapted from a 1929 play by Marieluise Fleisser, the film takes place in Fassbinderland: the Pioneers appear to be young Nazis, Alma's hairstyle and dresses are from the 1940s, but Berta's minidresses are decidedly from the late 1960s. Despite or perhaps because of the arrival of the Pioneers, Ingolstadt's inhabitants seem to be cut off from--yet still part of--the rest of the world, as if the town is encased in glass
Liebe ist kälter als der Tod( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in German and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fassbinder's debut feature depicts a chilly love triangle between a minor-league hood, his girl, and a career criminal
Niklashauser Fahrt( Visual )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fassbinder employed the true story of 15th-century medieval shepherd Hans Böhm, known as the "Drummer of Niklashausen", who claimed to have been called by the Virgin Mary to create a revolt against the decadent church and the landowners for this allegory about the sexual and political upheavals of Germany in the late 1960s. Combining medieval and contemporary imagery, this multilayered anachronistic avant-garde religious fable features Fassbinder himself as the the leather-jacketed Socialism-spouting "Black Monk" who nudges Böhm towards revolution
The Niklashausen journey( Visual )

1 edition published in 1970 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Can a small group of people start a proletarian revolution, asks the "Black Monk" in a leather jacket. The medieval shepherd, Hans Boehm, claims to have been called by the Virgin Mary to create a revolt against the church and the landowners. The "Black Monk" suggests that he would have more success if he dressed up Johanna and had her appear as the Virgin Mary." IMDB
