Only a couple

Slight Sam Shepard story, expect no Paris, Texas
here, or even Altman's Fool For Love
. This one is pretty pedestrian and forgettable, imo.

I remember very little about it, a few faces but none of their stories.

I liked this one a bit, an intriguing take on surveillance and panopticism, but it's also bloated and in need of a decent edit. It's similar to my impression of Until the End of the World
when I first watched the theatrical cut. I'm not sure if there's a DC of Violence
waiting around somewhere, but I would welcome it.
Also, not mentioned is his collaboration with Antonioni, Beyond the Clouds
, which might at first look like an artier Red Shoe Diary
, but is actually a very effective erotic drama. It's really more of an Antonioni film than Wenders, but worth seeking out.
