Shot in ghostly black and white, this dark homage to Sunset Blvd. follows a drug-addicted Nazi-era star attempting a comeback in the mid-1950s. Fassbinder’s penultimate film is an eerie, ironic account of self-delusion and exploitation, one that also stands as a sobering prophecy of the director’s demise shortly after its release.
