Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972)
Not Rated
  Aguirre captures the megalomania and loneliness of ambitious discoverers and conquerors of the new world. Shot on location in South America, the film emphasizes the grandeur and beauty of the landscape rather than dialogue.
Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (Criterion Collection) (1974)
  One of the best and most popular of Fassbinder's prolific film career. Ali explores the complexity of power within human relationships whether they be romantic, professional, or familial. Watch for the subtle references to Sirk's All That Heaven Allows.
The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum (Criterion Collection) (1975)
  This film resonates with contemporary discussions about terrorism, culture, and the media. Questions about the power of the media to control information and destroy lives ask the viewer to think about an ethics of journalism and reportage.
In a Year with 13 Moons (1978)
  One of the most moving and sophisticated Fassbinder films, 13 Moons skillfully combines experimental techniques with melodrama to tell explore love, desire, and passion in relationships. Amazing!
Nosferatu: The Vampyre (1979)
  This version of Count Dracula, a remake of the silent Murnau film, is not so much frightening as it is creepy and lyrical. Some amazing images which resemble paintings make this visually stunning to watch.
The Marriage of Maria Braun (Criterion Collection) (1979)
  Both a critical and popular success, Maria Braun traces the difficult postwar years in Germany through the eyes of a young woman, who successfully manages to climb out of poverty through hard work and ambition. One of the best endings of all time.
The Tin Drum (Criterion Collection) (1979)
  An allegory about postwar Germany, this film is worth watching for the amazing performance of the young boy who plays Oskar.
