Fassbinder filmography can be a very rocky road. Also very varied. If you come across a dog, don't let it discourage.

Florida Project was my number 2. Or at least should have been. It is a film that has a firm grasp of both the dream like state of childhood as well how desperately real and vulnerable a time it is. A...
