Janet Maslin New York Times Shadow of Angels is of more interest as a marginal part of the Fassbinder canon than as an example of Mr. Schmid's directorial acumen. Rated: 2/5 May 20, 2003 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader An interesting contrast to Fassbinder's own films of this period, it eschews Hollywood melodrama as a model and tries for something more operatic; it's probably one of Schmid's best features. Jan 1, 2000 Full Review TV Guide Daniel Schmid's elegantly directed stroll through the lower depths is indelibly stamped by the personality of his co-screenwriter, Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Rated: 3/4 Sep 18, 2006 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It offers viewers a contrast to the usual Hollywood melodrama. Rated: B+ Dec 20, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
