How is it possible to expect that mankind will take advice when they will not so much as take warning. Jonathan Swift (1667-1745)

The burning of rebellious thoughts in the little breast, of internal hatred and opposition, could not long go on without slight whiffs of external smoke, such as mark the course of subterranean fire. Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896)

A masterpiece is something said once and for all, stated, finished, so that it's there complete in the mind, if only at the back.
Virginia Woolf (1882-1941)

A rockin' nugget of writing I found in my yahoo emails from fall 2006: You see, Fassbinder is excellent at expressing himself, making each of his films “autobiographical” in terms of giving another side of him. This film is of course no exception. What I do, however, believe is distinct about this film is many elements of Merchant aren’t always noticeable unless you scrutinize carefully, and the individual nuances cumulate into a visual expression only of Fassbinder’s proportions.
