Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Wolf Gremm. Germany. 1982, 106 mins. Digital projection. With Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Gunther Kaufmann. In German with English subtitles. In his final acting role, legendary director Rainer Werner Fassbinder (clad in an iconic leopard-skin suit) stars as the hardboiled detective Jansen. In a neon-drenched futuristic dystopia ruled by a multimedia conglomerate called The Combine, Jansen is sent on a labyrinthine investigation when their headquarters is threatened with mass destruction by a phantom bomber. This essential cult classic features a hypnotic electronic score by Tangerine Dream's Edward Froese as well as gleefully mind-bending production design. Preceded by The Gunfighter (Dir. Eric Kissack, U.S., 2014, 9 mins. Narrated by Nick Offerman.)
