205 minutes — To Be Announced, DV , Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Germany, 1973
OTTAWA PREMIERE | NEW DIGITAL RESTORATION
A dystopic sci-fi epic, Fassbinder’s gloriously cracked, boundlessly inventive take on future paranoia tells the noir-spiked tale of reluctant action hero Fred Stiller, a cybernetics engineer who uncovers a massive conspiracy. At risk? Our entire (virtual) reality as we know it. This long unseen, three-and-a-half-hour labyrinth is a satiric and surreal look at the weird world of tomorrow from one of cinema’s kinkiest geniuses. English subtitles.
