Although the version of “Mother Kusters Goes to Heaven” currently being shown on FilmStruck does a fake-you-out move by spelling out, and including, two different endings, Fassbinder's complex movie presents a compelling case for autonomy of the individual.
In an age when the NSA utilizes the same data that social media crunches to decide the plot of the next Hollywood movie you sit through like a hungry cat sniffing fresh tuna in the air, “Mother Kusters” puts the media, politics, and familial trust in same trash bin.
Brigitte Mira’s elderly matriarch is a postfeminist every bit as fascinating as the outsider character she played in Fassbinder’s “Ali: Fear Eats The Soul.”
