Janis Joplin - Me and Bobby McGee
In the course of his personal development, Fassbinder repeatedly broke with people who had become dependent of him - and on whose dependency he himself had become dependent! This must often have seemed unjust and brutal. And he knew only too well that independence alone does not make for happiness. It was no accident that one of his favourite songs was Janis Joplin’s version of ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ with the bittersweet refrain ‘Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose’. He used it in both Berlin Alexanderplatz and Theatre in a Trance. The song was played over Fassbinder’s coffin; if his higly complicated and contradictory life could be summed up in a single sentence, this one would be fairly accurate.
Fassbinder in one of the most fascinating directors there are (you can see his work, he’s dead). To see his work is to be washed in the art of filmmaking.
You know, Monica Vitti.
Oh, my gosh!!
Love this face. Reminds me of Monica Vitti, well, Monica Vitti’s face.
“What about acting?
Actors interpret. You can’t compare acting with another form of art. I wouldn’t say acting is an art but film as a whole is.”
Anderson has cited Stefan Zweig’s memoir “The World of Yesterday”as the spark for his new film.
