A Powerful Political Potential: Todd Haynes on Sirk and Fassbinder

Todd Haynes, the director of FAR FROM HEAVEN, a homage to Douglas Sirk, discusses that director’s influence on Rainer Werner Fassbinder as well as on his own work. Haynes is engrossing and intelligent without ever being highbrow. His discussion of the criticism of radical political cinema versus the criticism contained within the cinema of popular culture, such as ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS, is a great starting point for an appreciation of Sirk’s movies.
