Beware of a Holy Whore Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This film by wunderkind [[Performer~P89436~Rainer Werner Fassbinder~rainerwernerfassbinder]], his 10th, is one of the rare films about filmmaking which was said by the critics to have succeeded both technically and as drama. In it, a German film crew sits in their Italian hotel, waiting for the arrival of their director ([[Performer~P11696~Lou Castel~loucastel]]), their star (Eddie Constantine) and more money. While they wait, argue, complain, and enter and leave romances, the delusions of a whole community of filmmakers are humorously unveiled. This film is said to be a scathing and satirical self-criticism by Fassbinder of his own methods and of his colleagues and entourage. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
