Tuesday Morning Foreign Region DVD Report: "The State of Things" (Wim Wenders, 1982)

20 October 2009 8:17 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"What did you do out in Hollywood?" Such is the question posed at the very end of this film, by some kind of auteur/mogul/god who has heretofore been inaccessible to director/potential auteur Frederich Munro, who has been making some sort of sci-fi film...where? At an abandoned resort in Portugal?

And that his science-fiction film is some sort of remake either of Allan Dwan's 1961 D-budget picture Most Dangerous Man Alive or of Roger Corman's The Day The World Ended. It really scarcely matters what the source material for the sepia-toned apocalyptic whirlwind being shot by a somewhat older but nevertheless Wenders-esque director (played by Patrick Bauchau) is supposed to be.  The point is that the behind-the-scenes story of the unmaking of this fictional film is just as much a bit of science-fiction as any of the sepia-toned rushes are.
