Film Movement Classics takes aim at KAMIKAZE 89 (review)

Filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder had his first film lead and final acting role in 1982's KAMIKAZE '89.  Loosely based on Per Wahlöö's "Murder on the 31st Floor", the film finds Fassbinder as alcoholic police lieutenant Jansen investigating a bomb threat against The Combine, the monolithic company that controls all arts, news, and entertainment for The Federal Republic of Germany.  He's got "ninety six hours to crack his last case... his time's already up."
