"The Cinema of Wim Wenders" is a new study of the films of this most prominent of German directors whose films include "Kings of the Road," "Paris, Texas," and "Wings of Desire." This book identifies and critically elucidates Wenders' chief artistic motivation: that the act of seeing can constitute a creative act in its own right.
