Today would have been the 60th birthday of Rainer Werner Fassbinder. The great bad-boy genius of post-War German cinema, Godard called Fassbinder the German Rossellini, although if anything, he was probably the German Pasolini. I'll pay Jean-Luc a compliment and call Rainer the German Godard - multiplied by, like, a gay Sid Vicious. Times fifty.
