Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Like the Jean Genet novel from which it was faithfully adapted, Rainer Werner Fassbinder's swan song is a mannered, sometimes maddening affair whose complex symbolism and inflated rhetoric fly in the face of conventional storytelling. A mixture of guttersnipe philosophy, masculine ritual, and choreographed violence, the film oozes sexual tension and decadent glamour. But from the endless scenes of Jeanne Moreau singing a shrill cabaret ditty to the obtrusive narration and intertitle quotations, the film is often uncinematic in its translation of Genet's paean to self-actualization through treachery. Peer Raben's ominous electronic score is absolutely killer, as is the production design; the port town of Brest is brought to life on a stylized sound stage full of opulent interiors, cartoonish exteriors, and phallic set pieces. Yet the action moves so slowly, and the script is so talky, that the intricate wit and violent force of Genet's intellect often get lost. Brad Davis gives a granite-faced lead performance, his hard beauty ripe for the projected fantasies of the other characters (and the audience), while Moreau endures the considerable weight of Genet's unapologetic misogyny in a brave but ultimately masochistic turn. Supporting players such as Gunther Kaufmann, Hanno Poschl, and Franco Nero (the latter as Querelle's besotted lieutenant) also turn in compelling performances. Ultimately, though, this isn't an actors' film. It's a schematic amoral treatise dressed up in Tom of Finland drag -- a concept that works better on the written page than on celluloid.

Arguably one of his best and most interesting features, though not one of the most celebrated...
