Who or what is/was Fassbinder?

Reprinted from the Echoes FAQ
Fixed on the front of her Fassbinder face
Was the kind of a smile
That only a rather dull child could have drawn
While attempting a graveyard in the moonlight

Fassbinder is a German playwright/filmmaker. He's been called "artsy," "grim," and "simplified." The line could refer to the kind of leading lady that he'd use in a movie, or perhaps it means "grim/mournful."
