Wings of Desire
It's one of those movies that both confused and compelled me. It has you thinking about concepts of life and death, wondering about mortality. I've read about people who have seen Wings of Desire several times still don't know what to think of it. Personally I don't blame them.
The cast of Wings of Desire act their parts well but if I had to choose my favorite from them, I'd go with Peter Falk as himself. He just acts like a person going through their day, simple as that. It's also for his soliloquy. That soliloquy is why Falk is someone who had a certain charm when on screen.
Although meddling sometimes, Wings of Desire is a very good movie. As I mentioned, it has you thinking of the meaning of existence. Though I liked it, a re-watch is imminent in the distant future.
My Rating: ****1/2
