This Ain't Martha's Vineyard

Tonight we saw Fassbinder's Martha at Camera Рunbelievably a film made for German television. Man, they don't just do "Shogun" on German TV, huh? I guess it's sort of "taking the piss" out of "The Bourgeoisie" in the form of a weird German take on the Melodrama. Once you embrace it as a schwarze Kom̦die/black comedy, it's actually a whole lot of whacky, strange fun. I only wish I knew enough German to yell at the top of my lungs, "SLIME! THIS isn't music! It's SLIME!" So far, we've gotten by yelling, "Schhhlime! Dis muzika ich SCHLIME!" I can't say I recommend it for everyone, but it opened my eyes to a type of movie that might normally have put me to sleep.
