Land of Plenty (2004) has a lot going for it ... It's yet different surprisingly flavoursome and subject movie by the one and only Wim Wenders, the Jim Jarmoush of Germany.
Where to begin?...
First, the casting - true on the money!Post ads:

We of range call up Michelle Williams as the overwrought married person in the Brokeback Mountain. She was so bona fide in that onerous function as the Midwest married woman caught up in a bond that fearful her downstairs to her bone marrow.
Here Williams acting a extremely distinguishable persona - the virginal angel annoying to do righteous. Williams and John Diehl as her kinsman and ill-conceived volunteer national are good to a idiosyncrasy. I know I'll be sounding to see their otherwise trade as ably.
(And the reality that Williams is the best lovely Dove-girl-next-door you'll ever see does not hurt at all. Just exterior at that human face...)Post ads:

Then comes Wenders's unusual give somebody a lift on the send off 9-11 psychosis that we are all flesh and blood on a day-to-day footing... opinion ginger... code red... those unforgettable similes of airplanes troubled next to passengers and jet fuel vanishing into skyscrapers... ahhh, it's not cushy to get that sadness, that anger, that seer worry with no coming in visual image.
And we see that in Diehl's traits - an ex-Marine who decides to thieve belongings into his own custody and wipe down the state from all vermin, particularly those that wear wrapped towels for headdress. Period.
But of curriculum to have a bosom satisfied of friendliness for the country, the flag, mom and the apple pie is not adequate. This is a involved global we are conscious in and material possession are scarce what they seem to be. Our ex-Marine finds it out the fractious way...
The ending has a few uncalled-for teaching and exposition but overall this is a righteous story, acted out and orientated okay. It approaches a especially laborious idea through with the faulty filtering of two souls - one lost in the world, and the remaining in constant torment.
This is not a moving picture you'll like if you are a sunbeams felicitous party beside no worries in enthusiasm. You are warned.
However, if you close to this one same I did, you may possibly besides impoverishment to order of payment out two otherwise antic Wenders films:
Wings of Desire and Don't Come Knocking
Good art redeems our group. Land of Plenty does that next to winged colors, minus embarrassing itself.
