Like Road Movies? Meet the master – Wim Wenders. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Wenders directed a body of films that rank amongst the greats of contemporary cinema. They include the loose German road movie trilogy 'Alice in the Cities', 'Wrong Move' and the epic 'Kings of the Road' (The finest European Road movie ever made? We think so). Then there's 'The American Friend', the scintillating adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's 'Ripley's Game', and 'State of Things', in which the obsession of the filmmaking process, a sci-fi drama and a moving homage to legendary American filmmaker Nicolas Ray are all wrapped up into one striking film. There are masterpieces too. 'Buena Vista Social Club' is both a musical road movie across Cuba and a riveting history of a legendary band. 'Wings of Desire' finds angels watching over the citizens of pre-unified Berlin, just as one of their flock falls in love with a trapeze artist and comes crashing down to earth. And finally 'Paris, Texas', co-written by the late, great Sam Shepard. A wonderful evocation of Americana – both fictional and real – it's a haunting and profound mediation on relationships, individuality and the pain of separation, all set to a haunting, magisterial score by Ry Cooder.
