I didn't buy the complete 180 that Stanton's character did at one point in the movie, and that was on my mind for awhile. However, the film was beautifully shot. Excellent framing, composition, and use of colors by Wenders. This is poetry for the screen, folks. And it takes place in the beautiful landscape of Texas.
For me, I just kept thinking about the Old Hollywood passing over into the new. I think this film showcases this transition. Perhaps the best performance by a female that I've ever seen. The dramatic tension, irony, and vileness of the ladies create a gothic psychological horror for the ages and one of the best films that I've watched this year.
