The American Friend

The American Friend ★★★★★

At first you hear a score which stirs as if this were a slasher film: The tone is immediately unnerving. What follows is as existential as all great Wim Wenders films. Yet this captures a dilemma and a partnership with all the inherent contradictions of US-European relations amidst a Cold War. It’s both timeless and very of its era. One of those films that you can’t quite wrap your head around but you nonetheless love.
