5.0 out of 5 stars one of Fassbinder's finest moments, 24 July 2012

This review is from: I Only Want You To Love Me [DVD] (DVD)
I Only Want You To Love Me is one of Fassbinder's very best films, I think, even though it was made for television. It comes into the social realist category, but is quite a late example of the genre from him - by 1976 many of his films were more elaborate or sophisticated in concept. But it also has a subtlety that you don't find in earlier films like The Merchant Of Four Seasons or Katzelmacher, which have a certain bareness. This one is more satisfying, being quite tender towards the lovable main character and really quite heartbreaking in its conclusion. You feel that watching it has awakened your own empathy a bit more - it seems to be saying that we are always prone to overlooking those who are genuinely good without any show or glamour.
