Love Is Colder Than Death by Robert Katz

Librarians note: Alternate cover edition of ISBN 0586087923.

This is an examination of the life and work of Werner Fassbinder who, over a period of thirteen years, made a film on average every hundred days. His intense discipline and phenomenal creative energy when working contrasted violently with excess of abasement and tortured, convoluted relationships with the people he drew around him in a surrogate family. The author had worked with him and interviewed him in the months before his death, spent three years researching his life and talked extensively to Fassbinder people. He was dubbed by the New York Times as The Messiah of the New German Cinema and turned the hell he created in the real world into powerful images on the screen.
