Wim Wenders Bundesrepublik Deutschland, 1977

Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Der amerikanische Freund

A clever film by Wenders. I love how he cast famous directors like Sam Fuller and Nick Ray as his mobsters. Dennis Hopper is terrifying and enigmatic as usual, but it's Bruno Ganz's performance that really carries the film. I just wanted to shake him and scream "Don't go with these guys!" The whole affair is tragic from the start and it can't be stopped. Great colors and camerawork, too.
