The American Friend

The American Friend ★★★★★

There's nothing to fear but fear itself. I know less and less about who I am, or who anybody else is.

Wender’s creates an experience rivalled by very few. Where the flawless cinematography and stellar performances from Gunz & Hooper are remarkable, the film strikes me in its ability to continuously augment this sense of eerie tension within each scene; where ultimately, you find yourself completely subservient to the possessing nature of the plot and it’s consequent unravellings.
