Veronika Voss - Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1982 - BRD Trilogy)

Wikipedia - "Veronika Voss ... is a black-and-white 1982 film directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. ... She meets a sports reporter named Robert Krohn and is impressed that he does not know who she is. The two begin a love affair, even though Robert already lives with his girlfriend Henriette, who nevertheless realizes that Veronika has an irresistible allure. Veronika’s behavior is erratic and sometimes desperate, and as Robert delves into her life he discovers that she is essentially a captive to a corrupt neurologist named Dr. Marianne Katz. Dr. Katz keeps Veronika addicted to opiates and uses her power to give or deny drugs to bleed the actress of her wealth."
