Kamikaze '89

Kamikaze '89

Directed by Wolf Gremm

In his final acting role, legendary auteur Rainer Werner Fassbinder (clad in an iconic leopard skin suit) stars as hardboiled detective Jansen. In a neon-drenched futuristic dystopia ruled by a multimedia conglomerate called The Combine, Jansen is sent on a labyrinthine investigation when their headquarters is threatened with mass destruction by a phantom bomber.

The last performance from German filmmaking machine Rainer Werner Fassbinder, KAMIKAZE ’89 gives Fassbinder a memorably awful leopard-skin suit and sets him loose as a police officer in search of a bomb in an imagined totalitarian 1989 Berlin.

Cast: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Günther Kaufmann

The man was so ahead of his time. Very entertaining comedy. Smart, wicked, worth the watch.
