The Movie Is Strange

I think I liked it, but I'm still not sure. And some things I don't understand. Like, what's up with the score and soundtrack? It's some odd mix of mid 20th Century American country songs, with, I guess, jazzy kind of Cabaret music.
And what, if anything, is Fassbinder trying to say with the almost silent presence of the American soldier?
These are just 2 questions out of several. If anyone has any answers or comments, that'd be much appreciated.



Keep in mind by 1955 Germany was still under Allied occupation according to the terms of the Yalta and Potsdam conferences that ended World War II, hence explain a little if not all, the Black American soldier.


I loved the black & white cinematography and the performance from Rosel Zech. Fassbinder was a fascinating director. production-history
