The Little Chaos by Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

Directed by and starring Rainer Werner Fassbinder in 1966, this is a slight but intriguing riff on early Godard (Fassbinder as Leaud?). Of particular note is the passionate cinephilia of the nouvelle vague on display here, but mixed with the much harder edge of a very young German dealing with the political and ethical realities of a post-Nazi Germany.
