Review Of Fox And His Friends

Directing icon Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Fox And His Friends is part gay drama, part con artist genre film and part predictable German angst.  Released in 1975, this film doesn’t suffer from age, although it is far from the classic that I expected.

The film makes an unsubtle political point, although not about the place of gays in a heterosexual world so much as a rather transparent look at class distinctions and their hegemonic acceptance.  The lead character, nicknamed Fox, is seduced in his time of need by the corrupt bourgeoisie in the guise of caring fellow homosexuals.

The movie desparately needs some comic relief, of which there is precious little.  The audience and the characters need a rest of the repressive system-message.

However, one can certainly see in this film some of the genius that Fassbinder had.  It’s worth a view if only to watch the product of an auteur.

Trailer is below.
