When talking of Barbet Schroeder, audiences find it difficult to link the films together. What would you say are the characteristics of his cinema? Il ne pose pas le spectateur en juge. What is striking about Barbet Schroeder is precisely that difficulty in characterising his work.
For audiences, the name is vague. He has worked with genres and subjects that are so different that people find it difficult to identify them and make the link the Schroeder. Even though Barbet Schroeder is uncategorisable and atypical, certain elements do recur. The spectator is not made into a judge. There is neither good nor evil and the purpose of his films is not to decide on this. Schroeder tries rather to understand this strangeness which fascinates him. He is fascinated by the duality of good and evil, as was Fritz Lang, one of his favourite filmmakers.
But if Fritz Lang was fascinated directly by crime, Barbet Schroeder is interest in crossing the line, the limit which leads to crime. The film Murder by Numbers deals precisely with the theme of evil seeping into the minds of two young men. Barbet Schroeder Barbet Schroeder, a filmmaker without borders? Barbet Schroeder has obviously had an international past, both personally and professionally.
Although French by culture, particularly in terms of films, he was born in Teheran of Swiss-German parents, grew up in Colombia, filmed in the United States and in Japan. His cinema is linked to his own culture, which itself is multiple. For example, Barbet Schroeder succeeded in doing something which is rare for a French. Il a toujours voulu faire les films comme il le voulait.
Fassbinder Roulette chinoise. This success protected him for around 15 years. His success can also be explained by his beginnings as a producer. He has always had an idea on who to produce a film, which enabled him to understand the Hollywood studio system more easily. But despite his success, he never really blended into the world of Hollywood, he remained too independent to establish himself completely.
His position is once again one of being on the edges of a world which he accepts, but which he can also reject at times. Our Lady of the Assassins is a flagrant example of this, breaking radically from his previous Hollywood films. With this innovative film, shot in High Definition Digital, using mainly non-professional actors, he crossed the line and was no longer in the spirit of Hollywood megaproductions, but on the side of Columbia.
Going further with this question, you can see that there are no longer any clear borders in his directing process. Schroeder can use the preparation just as well as the shoot. For Koko, a Talking Gorilla, he changes the purpose of the shots taken for the preparation of the original film, and finally turns them into the documentary we know. More par exemple, fait partie des premiers films sur la drogue et le mouvement hippy. Barbet Schroeder, an independent filmmaker? He has always wanted to make films in the way he wanted. His training as a producer soon made him aware of this, but above all it gave him what he needed.
He is the sort of director who often changed crews. Once again you can see this constant desire to renew.
