    I'm just curious to see if anybody here a fan of Mr Wenders work?

    He's a director that I've overlooked, so wish to become more acquianted.

    I thought I'd seen Paris, Texas, but I suspect now that I may not have done so and have just picked up copy in dvd.

    How about his other films, are there any fans here of his work in general or have you watched many of his films?

    Aren't his films supposed to be a bit l-o-n-g?

    Paris, Texas is one of my all time favourite films, I adore that film.

    Wings Of Desire is also excellent, and The American Friend is pretty damn good.

    Thanks for the comments thus far chaps.

    If BBC4 is devoid of any good music this evening, I may treat myself to a vewing of Paris, Texas. I'm a bit of Harry Dean Stanton fan, and especially his smaller roles, the hitchhiker in Two Lane Black Top, at the end of The Straight Story, the guy who can get you gas in Escape from NY, etc.

    I was late to Paul Greengrass's films, Wim Wender is in that bracket, they are out there but you sometimes miss them.
