Godard sweetens the bitterness of this tale about the compromising pitfalls of the film business and a marriage on the rocks, with elegant camerawork and music (by, respectively, Raoul Coutard and Georges Delerue), and with Fritz Lang playing himself – a living reminder that great art is possible. Fassbinder offered his own thoughts on filmmaking with Beware of a Holy Whore.
