Ali: Fear Eats the Soul
Dir. R.W. Fassbinder (1974). R.W. Fassbinder set out to create stylized melodramas that would appeal to popular taste while criticizing the status quo. Ali remakes Sirks All That Heaven Allows, substituting a North African guest-worker and a 60-year-old German hausfrau for the originals more glamorous, star-crossed, May-December pair Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson.
