    As a german Fan of your site, this was a real special treat. Thank you Spencer & Crew. 

    Love Wim Wenders, he is a hero of mine. I always wonder whether he’s still trying to do a movie based on the music of Radiohead but his upcoming projects all sound very promising anyway.

    By the way, even though I love “Vertigo”, I would have probably blanked on that one, too. I mean it’s freakin’ Wim Wenders.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for checking it out, glad you enjoyed it.

    Wim was an amazingly philosophical and thoughtful storyteller so I was always a little hesitant to interject since he always had a point he was making. I could’ve easily gone on much longer if the time was available.

    Oh yes, that’s so true. If you just let him talk he can give you solid gold. 
    I don’t know how proper it is to post external links but if you’re interested and have not yet seen it, then this interview is a pretty good example:

    I could have listened to you guys talk for much longer as well. But that’s the thing with those crammed promo-schedules.
    Anyway, it was still a very profound and interesting conversation.

    Thanks again!

    That is a pretty amazing interview. He is one of those guys you just let go and he’ll make it fascinating.

    Promo schedules are a bit of a bummer, but we got a chance to interview him so it is hard to really complain right?

    Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the feedback.

    Can’t wait to see Pina myself. It looks pretty great. Wings of Desire is one of my all time favorites.

    It is very different from Wings of Desire, but it is amazing. Great use of 3D too.
