Kamikaze 1989 (1982) DVD5
Arthouse film fans will know the name Rainer Werner Fassbinder as one of the great guiding lights of the German new wave in the '70s and '80s. However, he also acted quite a bit throughout those years, mostly in his own films, but occasionally in films by other directors with whom he felt comfortable. His final onscreen performance in Wolf Gremm's Kamikaze '89 may just be the craziest thing Fassbinder ever did as an actor, and that's saying something.

It's a post-apocalyptic film noir set in a future where crime has disappeared, but only because the authorities have found new and exciting ways to explain it away. Fassbinder plays Lieutenant Jansen, a police investigator who is assigned the job of sniffing out the culprit of a bomb threat that is set to destroy The Combine, a centralized media empire that is in charge of all information. As Jansen, perpetually attired in a snappy leopard-print suit that is a couple of sizes too small, gets closer and closer to the truth, he finds out that not only is the truth a moving target, but it also has him firmly in its own sights, making the investigation a race against time.
