Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (Criterion Collection) back to product details

Subtle as a brick

Painfully obvious and didactic, dated, self-conscious, and just stupid, this movie is to racism what "Reefer Madness" is to Marijuana smoking. I literally can not believe the postive reviews and ratings given this movie.

totally, tenderly, tragically...

The usual classy criterion transfer of an almost unbearably beautiful movie. If you're not a fassbinder fan you should be. In this film he puts true love under the strain of petty societal mores and the results ain't pretty. I can't praise this movie enough. If you saw far from heaven and loved it, then you'll be in nirvana here. If you saw far from heaven and didn't get what all the fuss was about, see this one because it doesn't drown it's emotional gut-punch in film-geek fetish or preach to you. Ali just breaks your heart. Highly recommended
