  • 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

  • Beautifully shot in rich colors by Franz Lustig, it's possibly Wenders' most accessible film to date, and among his most emotionally satisfying. show more
