Wim Wenders Bundesrepublik Deutschland, 1977

wilkins's rating of the film Der amerikanische Freund

So many surprises for a movie that's always utterly under control. Just a gorgeously photographed piece of work, as is the norm with D.P. Robby Müller. Wenders is so crafty with how he lures you in, only to alter his tone. A fascinating use of a character like Ripley, who Dennis Hopper makes both awkward and menacing at the same time.
