He's been called everything from a petty tyrant to the last great filmmaker of the 20th century. In little more than a decade, Rainer Werner Fassbinder created an amazing legacy of 43 films and, by his death at the age of 37, had destroyed boundaries, redefined genres, and changed the course of world cinema. The lush widescreen western "Whity" (1970, 95 min.), winner of two German Oscars, centers on a slave who becomes the obsession of a demented family intent on disposing of one another. Presented in a beautifully restored anamorphic 2.35:1 widescreen transfer. "Pioneers in Ingolstadt" (1970, 87 min.), Fassbinder's first film to be invited to the Cannes and New York Film Festivals, alternates between perverse comedy and melancholy as a group of young German recruits building a wooden bridge in the town of Ingolstadt seeks relief from their boredom with alcohol, acts of brutality, and sexual escapades. A fierce cinematic talent, Fassbinder was hailed at the time by Vincent Canby as the most original filmmaker since Jean-Luc Godard.
