Wim Wenders Bundesrepublik Deutschland, 1977

El Biffo's rating of the film Der amerikanische Freund

Not a huge fan of Wenders, his films all seem like a drive down a long, lonely road that comes to a dead end in the middle of nowhere. But this film has Bruno Ganz and Dennis Hopper, pure magic, and a very discomforting "buddy film". Bruno Ganz is always great, to me, one of the greatest screen actors alive. Dennis Hopper was probably kind of an asshole, and he tapped into that in a way that worked really well.
