    Wants to be Terrence Malick, succeeds only partially. Somehow still captivating in a certain way, despite Affleck's incomprehensible mumbling

    ★★★½ Watched 07 Feb, 2015

    Had the pleasure of seeing the 5 hour director's cut tonight at the Berlin International Film Festival, with a conversation with Wim Wenders at the end. The movie's about 1h too long, but it is quite a cinematic achievement. I don't like Wenders' non-use of widescreen, and some parts seem corky by today's standards, but overall, it is a magnificent and encapsulating motion picture, with pioneering work in digital technology. This version is now restored and remastered, and who knows, might find its way onto BluRay soon...
