Having just seen Chinese Roulette,I'd definitely place it in my top 5 Fassbinder;the cinematography by Michael Ballhaus is brilliant.Stylised yet mysterious.

'Chinese Roulette' is an excellent one. That girl with the crutches just seems evil. Just to add a couple more good ones that haven't been mentioned:

1.Martha -- I'd describe this one as a "domestic horror film"! Copies of this rarity show up on eBay every now and then.

2.Mother Kusters Goes to Heaven
