Only just watched this for the first time.
I happened upon the above image several days ago; it called to mind a piece I’m writing. I knew I had to seek out the film.
The title was one I was unknowingly familiar with. Turns out it inspired that Nic Cage-Meg Ryan City of Angels a decade ago. (Wow. Has it truly been that long?) They’re hardly similar, however.
Wings of Desire‘s every moment is deeply emotive, lost in immersive thought; it encompasses love, life, and humanity. Achingly rich and beautiful filmmaking here.
Taos: it features Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. And if you’re cooler than you let on, Peter Falk as Peter Falk.
