Critic Reviews of "Ali Fear Eats The Soul"Time OutMarch 27, 2017
One of the most beautiful films ever made, plain and simple.New YorkerJune 03, 2014
Fassbinder's historicism is a crucial aspect of his modernism: he didn't just make use of prior forms, he quoted them, and derived from them the ironies implicit in his melodramatic styles.Chicago ReaderMay 25, 2011
This 1974 film stands as one of Fassbinder's sturdiest achievements, posed between the low-budget funkiness of his early features and the mannerism of his late period.VarietyJune 26, 2008
Technically flawless, deceptively simple and avoiding excesses, it is about problems that are timely and timeless in implications.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Fassbinder uses dramatic and visual excess to push everyday events to extremes, achieving a degree of political and psychological truth not accessible through mere social realism.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
It is, rather, another quite courageous attempt by Mr. Fassbinder to develop a film style free of the kind of realistic conventions that sentimentalize life's mysteries.Irish TimesApril 26, 2017
It even manages something like a happy ending without sugar-coating the still poignantly relevant themes.Timely and heartbreaking, some 43 years after its debut.Observer (UK)April 02, 2017
The performances are flawless; the themes remain timely.GuardianMarch 30, 2017
The performances of Brigitte Mira and El Hedi Ben Salem as Emmi and Ali are superb; they act with instant sympathy and charm and in their own way, they are the most purely lovable characters I have ever seen on a movie screen.Little White LiesMarch 30, 2017
Fassbinder made so many incredible films, but this is certainly up there with his finest.CineVueApril 14, 2016
It's surely the sheer, unvarnished humanity on display that's the film's greatest success.
