The second of Fassbinder’s great BRD Trilogy, this is the true story of an UFA starlet, rumoured to be a mistress of Goebbels, who falls to drug addiction after the war. Shot in icy black and white, it’s intentionally reminiscent of Billy Wilder’s Sunset Blvd but more devastating still.

Francis Coppola’s second take on an SE Hinton teen novel is in a very different register to The Outsiders: it’s an expressionistic urban art film dealing in icons, symbols and a syncopated percussive score by Stewart Copeland of The Police. Matt Dillon and Mickey Rourke star, along with a very young Diane Lane and Nicolas Cage (and "Domino", aka Sofia Coppola).
