KATZELMACHER

RW Fassbinder’s scalpel-sharp second feature depicts the intolerance of a group of financially and sexually frustrated slackers who spend most of their time hanging out in front of a Munich apartment building. When Greek immigrant labourer Jorgos (played by Fassbinder) arrives in their neighbourhood, their aimless lives are suddenly disturbed and new tensions arise, both inside the group and with Jorgos.

STRANGER THAN FICTION

When New York slacker Willie (John Lurie) and buddy Eddie (Richard Edson) follow Willie's cousin Eva (Eszter Balint) down to Florida, the pair set out on a road trip with the aim of finding fortune and paradise, or at the least, a break from boredom. A minimalist masterpiece of nonchalance that transformed the landscape of independent cinema.
