"This making movies is…suicide.”
Acclaimed director Wim Wenders’ most corrosive statement on the art of filmmaking, THE STATE OF THINGS (PARIS, TEXAS, WINGS OF DESIRE) is a powerful journey into the underbelly of the American film industry.
When his Hollywood producer disappears, leaving the actors and crew on the Portugese set of a sci-fi thriller with no money or film, director Friedrich Munro (Patrick Bauchau) travels to Hollywood to find him. What he uncovers is a shady world where criminals and moguls barely differ, and the art of filmmaking is merely another money-making enterprise.
Featuring maverick American directors Sam Fuller and Roger Corman, and shot during a hiatus on the troubled shoot of Wim Wenders’ homage to Dashiel Hammett, THE STATE OF THINGS continues the director’s exploration of American culture. The result is both visually arresting and one of the best films about filmmaking ever made.
