That’s cool that Criterion is releasing Wim Wenders’ dance movie from last year. Who knows, it could be good. Though when was the last time that Wenders really did an excellent movie? Wings of Desire? I mean, Buena Vista Social Club is good but that’s mostly because of the music, Ry Cooder’s unnecessary slide guitar interventions notwithstanding. But I simply cannot understand why, if Criterion is so enamored of Wenders, that it doesn’t put out Kings of the Road, The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick, Alice in the Cities, or any of his other outstanding films from the 70s and early 80s that remain unavailable on DVD, not to mention blu-ray.
