wenders and handke dig driving and music
14 January 1999 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A tight little gem from Wenders, as he and Handke discuss the merits of American music and its relevance in our culture. Typical langorous pans across cityscapes with a kicking soundtrack from the 3 American LP's of the title. A philosophical road journey that makes you think. Well worth viewing.
