CGiii Comment

Early Fassbinder...
 
His entire portfolio has been thrown into the quagmire for frenetic film students to devour - those being the only living souls who still appreciate and watch his work.
 
Delusion reigns supreme in that quagmire.
 
A dated diatribe that has no relevance now - it is questionable if it ever did.
 
A self-important neurotic who had difficulty in spotting a good performance.

The(ir) Blurb...

Can a small group of people start a proletarian revolution, asks the "Black Monk" in a leather jacket. The medieval shepherd, Hans Boehm, claims to have been called by the Virgin Mary to create a revolt against the church and the landowners. The "Black Monk" suggests that he would have more success if he dressed up Johanna and had her appear as the Virgin Mary.
