Rainer Werner Fassbinder: The Anarchy of the Imagination
Johns Hopkins University Press, 1992, Softcover, 276 pages, 23 × 15 cm
The Anarchy of the Imagination collects the most important interviews, essays, and working notes of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, one of the most influential cultural figures to emerge from post-war Germany. Whether reflecting on his won work oir writing about other directors, whether describing his discovery of actress Hanna Schygulla or speaking out in favor of political film making, Fassbinder's perspective is radical, subjective, and challenging. The writing in this volume-nearly all presented here for the first time in English-are an essential part of Fassbinder's legacy, the remarkable body of work in which present-day German reality finds brilliant expression.
