Films: V is for...

“Billing German art cinema, Herr Cream? Bit bourgeois, isn’t it?” Well, a) it’s a lean old week as regards our usual fare, and b) this is rather good as it goes. Gay-as-you-earn director Rainer Fassbinder does his usual ‘doomed woman’ thing, this time with a faded pre-war actress kept prisoner by a drug-dealing scientist. Homage to said Golden Age is paid via singularly fantastic black-and-white photography and some lovely old-fashioned circular wipes between scenes.
