makin' (lots of) movies

'One of many protégés of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, who gave Schygulla especially tender treatment and nurturing, while he terrorized, manipulated, and slept with many of the other actors and filmmakers Fassbinder developed in his incestuous family-like theatrical and film troupes. Over 12 years, Hanna Schygulla appeared in 23 Fassbinder movies (including his first feature film), the most acclaimed being The Marriage of Maria Braun (for which she won the Silver Bear), Lili Marleen (1981), and Berlin Alexanderplatz.' i never worked with the brilliant man so i have nothing but praise for fassbinder. much like cassavetes, each frame is photographable. the guy had a grand passion for beauty and tenderness. what a lovely photo of the two of them.
