Top Ranked Films of Wim Wenders

Wim Wenders
4 titles, 77th in points with 11,082

These are all the films of German director (who made most of these in the U.S.) Wenders that made the top 1000 in our 2011 update of the Top Ranked 1000 Films on the Net, all polls.

1. Wings of Desire (1987) #165 A bit of modern magic has some angels mingling with the living
2. Paris, Texas (1984) #316 Interesting film, especially for the performance of Harry Dean Stanton, but ultimately flows like asphalt in Texas summer
3. Kings of the Road (1976) #642
4. Alice in the Cities (1974) #705

Out of the top 1000
5. American Friend, The (1977) #1494

I've only seen the top two ranked films here. Wings was more amiable than Paris, Texas, but both are worth seeing, so it makes me think that so are the other three, and probably more. He's not exactly Werner Herzog, but then not many other German filmmakers are.
