    100 FILMS IN ONE SUMMER 2021 - FILM #11

    After watching McCabe & Mrs. Miller, I was not only surprised to see how well Robert Altman’s style fit the anti-western that he made, but I was also intrigued to see how his style would mesh with the horror genre in Images.

    I’m honestly amazed by the fact that Wim Wenders has managed to make consistently beautiful and impressive movies, although each of his movies are beautiful in different ways. I loved Paris, Texas because of its heartbreaking depictions of shame and cut family ties, and I especially loved The American Friend for how it deconstructed the noir genre while also being an impeccably crafted and suspenseful crime thriller. Wings of Desire isn’t as narratively driven…
