  • T Bone Burnett's soundtrack has the appropriate twang to give Wenders' Hopperesque tableaux a nice, filmic poetry. But as arresting as the images are, Shepard's clunky, soap-opera banter brings most everything, and everyone, crashing down to earth. show more

  • Don't Come Knocking expresses itself with deadpan humor, striking imagery, Western iconography and outbursts of strong emotions. show more
