Four by Rosenbaum on Fassbinder

In case you missed this, Film Studies For Free wanted you to know that, in the last two months, Jonathan Rosenbaum has been episodically publishing at his website a series of four essays that he wrote last year about various Rainer Werner Fassbinder films for Madman, the Australian DVD label. Like everything else at the site, these essays are really worth reading, so below are the direct links, and below them, you can find a short video clip from one of the films, Katzelmacher:

Film Studies For Free wanted to let academic fans of Werner Herzog know that (certainly in the UK, but most probably elsewhere, too, if no geoblocking) they can currently watch eight of his films on YouTube in their glorious entirety. This is thanks to the video distributor Starzmedia, one of the companies participating in YouTube’s growing efforts to stream full-length films with the support of the movie companies who own the rights. Below, FSFF has embedded the trailers of seven of the Herzog films that are currently available. Click on the titles to visit the YouTube pages for the full-length films, which can be watched freely online in relatively good quality versions (Even YouTube Screens Started Small…). (Click HERE for The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser added later. The Starzmedia channel for Herzog is HERE).

And, if that weren’t enough excitement for one FSFF day, beneath the video-trailers, at the foot of this post, are some other choice links to freely available Herzog material online.

Aguirre The Wrath Of God

My Best Fiend

Even Dwarfs Started Small

Fitzcarraldo

Lessons Of Darkness

Woyzeck

Little Dieter Needs To Fly
