Fassbinder's films provoke on multiple levels, often challenging a spectator's very capacity to respond. In a short time he produced a system of images startling, interrelated and tantalizingly incomplete. A cinema of such excess resists efforts at easy containment. This viewing diary attempts to address a number of themes within the work: the roles of the body; the flirtation with genre; the border crosser; the figure of the singer; the elements of science fiction.

Keywords: Fassbinder; autopoiesis; borders; genre; systems theory
