fox and friends was the one about the gays i gave up on (it was about 1:30am anyway) beware of a holy whore (lol) was the one i watched earlier in the evening. i like him as an actor. good swagger.

His films were so varied and he was so prolific cos he was boss of a theatre group whose other members directed alot of the films that bare his name
Sounds like sour grapes to me, failed artists badmouthing a varied and prolific genius who is too dead to stand up for himself.

Beware of a Holy Whore is brilliant, would make a good double-bill with 8 1/2

its a bit confusing and arty but it definitely has its moments. i liked eddie constantine and his eyes. and the shouting. germans shout better than anyone.

I admire the opening scene, and some of the self-referential stuff I thought was handled well.

It's just silly really... a man running away from his responsibilities and his women. But both it and BoaHW are broadly about someone trying and failing - or at least struggling - to make a film as I remember it.

What a child you are. Gave up cos it was 1.30am. Go back to your cartoons and comics.

Just kidding. I fell asleep 30 mins into world on a wire, have got no idea what happened in it. But woke up in time to see the sort of sex club scene with the black muscle men. And that secretary was very good. Fleetwood mac on the closing credits. Not sure I can persuade the wife to go straight into part 2.

i did manage to watch world on a wire for what its worth. i will perservere with Fassbinder. although perhaps not tonight. i slept badly last night cos Danny L used his magic to do a voodoo curse on me.

I actually think the conversation you want to have is worth having but probably the way you are going about it needs to change

thats always possible, you can do things for a while, but you cant keep it up forever. like youll have a giddy spell again at some point.
its just something you are subject to. these little things.
