Fassbinder's homage to Hollywood gangster films is updated for the seventies. Murder is still for sale, but crime is organized by the state, not by the mob. Ricky--hired first by the U.S. to fight in Vietnam, and now by the German police--follows orders to kill: kill soldiers, kill strangers, kill even his girlfriend. Although Ricky wears a soft fedora (as well as a white double-breasted suit), it is Fassbinder who tips his hat, with secondary characters named Walsh and Fuller. Stars Karl Scheydt, Fassbinder, Margarethe von Trotta and Kurt Raab. German with English subtitles.
