From the first time I saw it, this film resonated strongly on two levels;first, it is an excellent example of Wenders at his best: an almost dreamyprogression of exactingly composed images, mysterious characters, a "story"which comes as close as film can to "truth", and for the cineastes in theaudi...
Between commercial successes like Paris Texas and Angelsover Berlin, Wenders still manages to make the kind of seemingly irrelevantroad movies such as Santiago and State of Things, that have made him thecult hero he is. Here a cheesy scifi B-movie is interrupted at a climaticscene to follow people ...
The thing about a film like "The State of Things", much like Wenders'earlier film "The Wrong Movement", is how too much introspection canreally start to drag one down over time. Both pictures have theunfortunate distinction of talking themselves to death. This is not afilm that gives you insight int...
This is not a movie that's easy to understand, yet it easily makes youthink. It smells of nostalgia and of things past and fading. The filmthat the film crew is shooting about survivors to a nuclear holocaustis a parallel to the director's own journey to collect money from hisLA producer in order to...
This film was shot by Wenders while he was waiting for Coppola to get thefinancing to complete Hammett and his frustrations with that experienceareclearly expressed here. It is a very personal film and, as such, I thinkone of his best. The end sequence in LA is classic.Shot in beautiful black and ...
This is one movie I've enjoyed seeing over and over.It's one of my all timefavorite. The story is pretty simple; A filmmakerruns out of money while shooting in Portugal. He goes looking for hisproducer in Los Angeles to find out what is going on.This one of the most beautifully shot movie in black a...
Not only is this film a classic - the short ends became Stranger ThanParadise making this film a true two-fer.A very anti-Hollywood film structured first as a kind of meditation andthenturning into a great faux whodunit indictment of Hollywood itself. Thiswon't make a lot of sense until you actually...
This movie is probably one of the best movies of the early 80's.A simple story: the beginning is enigmatically, the dessert?, thespace? a lonely and a dead world and people who are trying to survivein a terrible weather, but they are just making a movie in Portugal,then the concepts of money and eco...
Time has passed since i watched this wonderful movie, and it remains inmy mind like those dreams you remember for ever although had lastedten, twenty, thirty years, like a child's dream. In effect ever ithough this film was made as Wenders wanted to built an feverish dream,the American night, in a g...

In 1981, Raoul Ruiz made a little film called Territory - a group ofpeople lost in a landscape, where without the signifiers of story or amap to guide them, we saw how they fell apart in all sorts ofhierarchies and explanatory dogmas. The allegory was about us and thestories we make up. A central im...
The film is slow, but very nice, because really shows life as it is. Ittalks about a director who shoots a movie without knowing that itsbudget will be cut off. Once he embarks on a journey to the U.S., wherehis film has been funded, he sank into the muddy waters of the life ofhis sponsor. The actio...
I saw this film when I was in mid-20s in 1982. I viewed this film withStanley Brock in Santa Monica, California. Stanley Brock was in the ActorsStudio with one of the actors from "State of Things" - Allen Garfield. Ihave not seen the film again, but if I see it in the video store, I willrent it.T...
This is painful for me to write since I am sure it will bemisinterpreted. But I feel it is important to add an antidote to themany positive reviews here. First, be it known that I am a big fan ofWenders, which is the entire reason why I should seek out The State ofThings and purchase it on DVD.It wa...
The State of Things was a satisfying experience and way better than theother Wim Wenders movie I have seen (The Scarlet Letter). It made mefeel a lot like when I watched Fellini's 8 1/2: both are films aboutdirectors unable to make their movies and both movies end up, in myopinion, losing points for...
The cinematographer,real or fake,who would have been free to explorelife and death, through narratives and images of his own conception,becomes an object of exploitation from the medium and it's economicconcomitants.So he fools himself by abandoning his art to theconventions of economic necessity.Fr...
This film brought a whole new meaning to that well-worn phrase 'likewatching paint dry' because this was 'like watching paint dry in themiddle of a monsoon'.I was attracted to the film by its location on the west coast ofPortugal which I have visited. It is a ruggedly beautiful place and theblack-an...
Did someone find the plot somewhere in the film?. Perhaps it is the thingmissing in this pretentious exercise of cinema about cinema. It is quitesurprising that Gordon says that "A movie without a plot is nothing"... Itis possible that characters have more to say that the own Wim Wenders. Wasthis ph...
