A volume that combines three influential works on the cinema by Wim Wenders, one of the major international filmmakers of our time
Wim Wenders's body of work is among the most extraordinary in modern cinema. It includes such films as Paris, Texas; Wings of Desire; Buena Vista Social Club; and The Million Dollar Hotel. Fortunately, his passion for cinema also extends to writing about it, and in this volume all his published essays on films and filmmaking--as well as his thoughts on such disparate subjects as rock 'n' roll, architecture, questions of German identity, and the influence of America--are brought back into print. Including the essays that previously appeared in Emotion Pictures, The Logic of Images, and The Act of Seeing, On Film discusses Wenders's development as a filmmaker from the time he picked up a camera at age twelve and offers a broad analysis of his guiding passions as he analyzes the full range of his work, film by film, and reveals his views on genres ranging from the American Western to the European avant-garde, along the way answering the deceptively simple question "Why do you make films?"
