Satansbraten is Fassbinder’s rare, unhinged and blatant attempt at social satire through screwball comedy. While his most well known films express a melancholic yet optimistic portrayal of humanity, in Satansbraten, he commits himself to nihilistic abandon through Walter Kranz, a troubled poet on the brink of inhumanity.

A trailblazer for his contemporary and intoxicating reinvention of jazz, hip-hop, R&B, electronic and more, José James is definitely on the cutting edge of contemporary musical composition. “No Beginning No End sums up how I feel about music right now,” says José James of his Blue Note Records debut. “I don’t want to be confined to any particular style. I decided I didn’t want to be considered a jazz singer anymore and that was really freeing. No Beginning No End is a seamless musical experience that moves between different styles with remarkable fluidity, bound together by James’ transcendent voice. It marks a new chapter in the artistic journey of the 33-year-old singer/songwriter. Conceived, recorded and produced independently without any recording contract, the album is his most personal statement yet.
