Storyline

Because the driver is unable to fulfill correctly his order to kill somebody, he and his friends have to pay the price. "Alabama" is a road-movie. The camera is constantly in the back of the car shooting through the back window... But more important than this story is how the song "All Along the Watchtower" by Bob Dylan is changing when it is interpreted by Jimi Hendrix. And the recurring album of the Stones "His Satanic Majesty's Request". Written by Kurzfilmtage - international short film festival Oberhausen

Of course it's good -- it's Wenders!
22 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

I saw "2000" just once, yet, like all Wenders' films, I still remember glimpses.

"The Wrong Move(ment)" was the feature attraction, it was 1978, and they were a good pair. "2000" is essentially a 20-minute musical journey.

Traveling thru the deep South, with a bluesy, rambling pace to it. A Dylanesque character .. who's "got no expectations, to pass .. this way .. again" (yes, music by the Stones and Hendrix).

I didn't realize the "film" was shot in 1969. It could pass for a student film, but then again, it's Wenders.

Definitely worth seeing. Not for someone in a rush. A good companion for an evening of subdued reflecting.
