Tribute to Rainer Werner Fassbinder
















Everyone must decide for himself whether it is better to have a brief but more intensely felt existence or to live a long and ordinary life.

I hope to build a house with my films. Some of them are 
the cellar, some are the walls, and some are the windows. 
But I hope in time there will be a house.

- Rainer Werner Fassbinder - 

May 31, 1945 – June 10, 1982

More important than food or clothes - more important than gold or houses or lands - more important than art or science - more important than all religions, is the liberty of man.

"Incommunicado" Forever: Gitmo Detainee's Case Stalled for 2,477 Days and Counting

"Incommunicado" Forever: Gitmo Detainee's Case Stalled for 2,477 Days and Counting 
Since being seized in a raid in Pakistan in 2002, Abu Zubaydah has had his life controlled by American officials, first at secret sites, where he was tortured, and since 2006 in a small cell in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. And, thanks to one of the strangest, and perhaps most troubling, legal cases to grow out of the War on Terror, it appears he's not going to be leaving anytime soon-which was exactly the plan the CIA always wanted. Not even his lawyers understand what's transpired behind closed doors in a Washington, D.C., courtroom.
