Genre: Drama. Dir: Wim Wenders. Country: USA.
A profoundly moving character study written by the late great playwright Sam Shepard. Mysterious, nearly mute drifter Travis (Harry Dean Stanton) tries to reconnect with his young son, living with his brother in Los Angeles, and his missing wife (Nastassja Kinski).
Wenders and Shepard produce a powerful statement on codes of masculinity and the myth of the American family, as well as an exquisite visual exploration of a vast, crumbling world of canyons and neon, enhanced by the evocative soundtrack from Ry Cooder.
