Wim Wenders’s dispassionate 1975 study of a painfully alienated young man’s journey along the Rhine, where he encounters a number of other angst-ridden souls and bemoans the damage visited on the countryside by German technoculture. Everyone wants to be an artist, but no one has anything to say. The wrong moves are geographical, historical, social, and aesthetic. It’s Wenders’s most dour film, and the grim tone takes its toll. There is, though, a solid and disturbing talent at work here. With Hanna Schygulla, Rüdiger Vogler, and Nastassja Kinski. In German with subtitles.
