Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s last film (1982), shot just before his death but edited afterward, was a genuine departure for him in many respects: it was his first wide-screen work, shot in a highly stylized, dreamlike studio seaport. Arguably one of his best and most interesting features, though not one of the most celebrated, it was adapted from Jean Genet’s novel Querelle de Brest. With Franco Nero, Jeanne Moreau, and Brad Davis as the central sailor and object of desire.
