In 'Veronika Voss' (1982), a journalist (Hilmar Thate) becomes fascinated with Veronika Voss (Rosel Zech), 1940s German film star and one-time friend to Goebbels, who has deteriorated into a morphine addict in the care of a disreputable doctor. In 'In a Year of Thirteen Moons' (1978), Volker Spengler gives an extraordinary performance as the transgendered Elvira, a man who has become a woman in a desperate bid to please a former lover. Relaying various episodes from Elvira's life, Fassbinder's powerful film is also one of his most intensely personal. 'The Third Generation' (1979), one of Fassbinder's most controversial films, is a perverse satire about an incompetent gang of bourgeois terrorists who are motivated more by a desire for action than by their weak political convictions. 'Germany in Autumn' (1978) is a portrayal of the political unrest wrought in the autumn of 1977 by the terrorist activities of the Red Arm BBFC code: 18

A once famous, Shakesperian actor (Albert Finney), who demands to only be called 'Sir', presides over an acting company who are exempt from military service due to age or health. Tom Courtenay plays his dresser, camp and nagging, but the only one who can communicate with 'Sir' (who is struggling with demons from his past and descending into senility) and manages to keep him together; helping with his lines, listening to his worries and reassuring him about his talent. Both men rely on each other and the play 'Sir' has put on, 'King Lear', seems to echo what is going on backstage.

The night before his first big match, 19-year-old footballer Jason (Russell Tovey) shares a hotel room with long-time friend and team-mate Ade (Arinze Kene). Unable to sleep, the pair joke, laugh and mock each other in an attempt to beat pre-match nerves. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Jason kisses Ade, a split second decision which will go on to have a major impact on the public and private lives of both men over the course of the next ten years.
