Sample text

The stark black-and-white cinematography often consists of effective long shots or intense dolly-driven tracking shots when Accatone is talking to his ex-wife or Stella. Despite many of the shots being shot in full daylight, the sun does not make the film any less grim. As much as the main character is an antihero, Accatone is still heartbreaking because the guy knows his situation and can’t escape from it, elevating what might have been an anecdote to tragedy. Mamma Roma is, in a sense, an aesthetic follow-up to Accatone, and was met with more censorship trouble.

Finally, the sequence calls attention to Van Peebles’s own role as the novice director of Story; like Tucker and Miriam, he has embarked on a difficult mission. Tucker’s entrance into the bar is announced first by a shot of the lower two-thirds of him passing a poster bearing the word BROWN and then a POV passing through a set of saloon-style double doors. A second poster clearly reading JAMES BROWN is located behind the bandstand. Further shots of the entranceway hover on a Cinzano Bianci wine advertisement near the first poster.

Like Breathless, this scene features a restless camera and cutting technique; each character’s exit from the building’s glass doors is initiated by a jump cut and followed with the same pan right. Fassbinder’s protagonist, excited with his endeavor, rocks violently forward and back in the Volkswagen’s passenger seat. Fassbinder’s insertion of himself as lead character in this early film announces to viewers that there’s a creative presence at work and he’s happy (perhaps due to his state funding) to be labeled a lunatic.
