A man in a red baseball cap comes stumbling over the Mexican border and into the Texan desert, mute, bowed but driven by an obsessive quest. When his brother (Stockwell) drives him (Stanton) home to LA, the shards of his broken life are painfully pieced together in fits and starts of talk. Wenders' collaboration with writer Sam Shepard is a master-stroke, wholly beneficial to both talents; if Wenders' previous film, 'The State of Things', was on the very limits of possibility, this one, through its final scenes, pushes the frontier three steps forward into new and sublime territory. Screened as part of Everyman Cinema's Road Movies residency at the King's Cross Filling Station. (12)
