WHY DOES HERR R RUN AMOK (1969) (18+)
Dir: Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Herr R, technical draftsman and model family man, enjoys a comfortable, but uneventful middle-class existence. One afternoon, for no apparent reason, he bludgeons his wife and child to death with a heavy candlestick. The next morning he is found hanged. The theme of the ordinary man destroyed by his inability to cope with modern life was a favourite of Fassbinder’s.
