Description: The title of this documentary on Rainer Maria Fassbinder is just slightly changed from the title of a film that director made in 1976, entitled Ich Will Doch Nur, Dass Ihr Mich Liebt (I Only Want You to Love Me). The wunderkind of postwar German filmmaking died at age 36 in 1982 after making over 50 films in his short fifteen year career. He tended to produce resolutely experimental films using members of his theatrical troupe, the Anti-Theater. Hanna Schygulla, frequently the female lead in his films, speaks about the man and his character as a director, as do others who were members of his extended filmmaking family. This is the first attempt to produce a documentary of the audacious, controversial director since his death, and it is interesting that it shuns personal controversies (his homosexuality, drug use) that he never shied away from in real life. Those looking for a deeper perspective on the man's character and development will have to wait for another feature; his complex and far-reaching career will surely yield quite a few.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
