Gods of the Plague


Gods of the Plague (Gotter der Pest) is one of several German films directed by [[Performer~P89436~Rainer Werner Fassbinder~rainerwernerfassbinder]] under his pseudonym of Franz Walsch. That's Fassbinder, however, playing the small role of a buyer of pornography. The main story involves a pair of two-bit hoods who spend most of the film one-upping each other with a brace of scheming females. Their dreary life of crime comes to a spectacular head in a shoot-out at a supermarket. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
