The Third Generation
AroView: A scathing black comedy about terrorism, one of the final films of German provocateur Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
A hilariously indiscriminate plot involves a wealthy capitalist who funds a radical left terrorist cell to boost sales of his line of security focused computer systems. Draws on the reign of terror that enveloped Germany in the 1970’s to full effect. Filled with drug-addled asides and in-jokes mocking specific aspects of left wing academia and activism of the time, this is Fassbinder in his element. (German title: Die Dritte Generation)
