Rainer Werner Fassbinder creates a portrait of a warped, cruel family. Info One of the more obscure films in West German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder's huge oeuvre, Chinese Roulette (1976) depicts bourgeois family life as a series of games and power struggles. By the time the ensemble cast finally plays the titular truth-guessing game in the third act, the plot has already built up many layers of cruelty and trickery. A rich industrialist, Gerard Christ (Ulli Lommell) means to bring his mistress (Anna Karina) to his country estate. Unfortunately, his daughter Angela, who blames her need for crutches on her parents' infidelities, has arranged for his wife (Margit Cartensen) and her lover to secretly vacation there as well. When the four cheaters meet, they all laugh before an awkward silence falls, and Angela announces herself as the puppetmaster. The adults try to make the best of it, and spend the weekend together, all the while disturbing the housekeeper, Kast (Brigitte Mira), who pushes her son to publish his vapid writing with help from Christ. Finally, there is the daughter's mute maid, Traunitz (Masha Méril) who is the only source of tenderness in the film, as she cares for the lonely child even as she lashes out at the people who have abandoned her. Chinese Roulette would have the feel of a play, almost completely taking place within the mansion, if it weren't for the exceptional camera work of Michael Ballhaus (who also worked with Coppola and Scorsese). The camera often zooms in on faces barely holding back rage, and doubles, refracts and distorts the characters behind panes of glass as they reconsider themselves under the harsh judgment of others.

The casino has long had their own versions of roulette and craps but they were played with cards instead of a ball and dice. Long banned in our state, the law changed after the historic tax package passed in the last legislative session. It was part of the plan to get more money for education and teachers in our state. “I think they were probably tired of seeing the clones of the real games and they’re excited to see real Vegas style games come to Oklahoma,” said Todd Brand, Director of Casino Operations for Grand Casino.
