Hanna Schygulla is so bad-ass. As one of the ultra-femme inspirations of German filmmaker (and all-around wunderkind) Rainer Werner Fassbinder and as one of the co-stars of Cannon Film’s batshit-loco action opus Delta Force, her pedigree cannot be denied!
Although, her penultimate moment onscreen may be as Karen, her lusciously manipulative lesbian, in Fassbinder’s Sirk-like The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant. Nicely, she also lent great mystery, years later, to Kenneth Branagh’s gothic reincarnation thriller Dead Again.
But…perhaps, her moments as a chanteuse in the last decade or so, have provided the world with her ultimate performances.
Whatever your personal preference may be, without a doubt, her singular majesty will, rightfully, live on forever!
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
