A 24-year-old Fassbinder plays a small-time pimp who refuses to join a crime syndicate, though it promises him more money. His handsome and murderous boyfriend is dispatched to change his mind, and the pair is soon embroiled in both a love triangle and a crime spree. Dedicated to Chabrol, Rohmer, and Straub, haunted by the laconic thrillers of Jean-Pierre Melville, and stylistically showboating with long, wordless tracking shots, Love Is Colder Than Death is movie-mad in a way not seen since the heyday of the French New Wave.
