Watson also incorporates his own interviews with Fassbinder's mother and with the woman who served as Fassbinder's film editor and companion during the final four years of his life. A comprehensive, balanced study, 'Understanding Rainer Werner Fassbinder' also features an annotated bibliography, extensive notes, a filmography of Fassbinder's works, and a listing of films and television programs that examine Fassbinder and his achievements."--Back cover."@en ;
