It is instantly appealing. It is magnetic. It is irresistible. You can try not to buy it but that takes extraordinary amounts of disinclination. The human response is to buy it!
Any book that reproduces the opening titles of a film like this. Better than cinema / better than books.
Wim Wenders' location photographs. The blue and the red already in evidence. The film exists in those two colours.
And it begins. The sign to the Marathon Motel suggesting that Harry Dean Stanton's desert walk will be a long one. The book is perfectly paced too. 150 of these double page stills illustrate every scene. With the script, biographies and on set photographs - 500 pages.
Until time stops still. These scenes. Nastassja Kinski peroxide blonde in the red mohair sweater dress.
It is incredible. This film you could pause anywhere and print out a poster. 24 frames a second. And image above still one in a million. And we could sell the book a million times over.
The first of the production photographs that follow the film stills in the book. The fictional mother and son reunited. The red is gone. Replaced by a very healthy blue. See more of this MAGIC book
