I disagree with the other review on the page. Admittedly it doesn't feature the fantastic early Wenders movies (Eg: Kings of the Road, Alice in the cities, Goalkeepers Fear of the Penalty etc), but it is definitely worth buying, because everything on here is great, especially Tokyo Ga, and Wrong Move. The documentaries are really interesting, and its got The American Friend, which is one probably his best film (Alongside Kings of The Road), all in perfect prints.
Hopefully another company like the BFI will put out the other classics (They released them on VHS in the 90's), and then the world can be reminded that he is a marvelous director (Despite his recent soggy output, that are probably due to his alleged conversion to fundamentalist christianity), in need of a re-appraisal.

Wim Wenders, to me, up to now, was only 'Paris, Texas' and 'Wings Of Desire'. And the Buena Vista Social Club film. Somehow though, Wenders' represented an iconic, slightly mystical and talented director that I wanted to see more of.

When this set came up, second-hand and reasonably priced I grabbed it. After some quick online research, I still knew little about the other eight films contained that I hadn't seen, but I thought it worth the gamble.

I hadn't realised how many were documentaries and those don't normally do a lot for me, whoever makes them. But, I'll watch almost anything and give them a fair chance, especially if I've paid good money for them!

So far, I've only watched The American Friend, which I really enjoyed and the docu Tokyo-Ga, which, being about Wim's trip to Japan to research into his favourite director, Ozu, was of interest as I have some of his films and think a great deal of his work. There are a number of documentaries that have been made about Japanese culture, shot in Tokyo, by now but whilst now out-of-date (1983) Tokyo-Ga is still fascinating.

Though I can update this review as I watch more, I wanted to expand on the only two reviews so far. I thought the actual set was impressive, the way they fit into a letter-coded sequence spelling 'Wim Winders' across their spines, which then fit into a box - and the booklet written by renowned film critic David Parkinson.

I realise that this isn't the definitive complete collection it might try and make out it is but I am quite new to Wim's extended work and so, am quite happy with it, thank you....

Well, there's no doubt that both Wrong Move and The American Friend show Wenders in excellent form, but...the rest? Mostly of curiosity value. Be honest, now. If this box set contained those two films plus The Goalkeper's Fear Of The Penalty, Alice In The Cities, Kings Of The Road, and The State Of Things, you'd snap it up in a Dusseldorf minute, right? As it is, maybe rights issues mean that this set represents the best Wim currently available for DVD distribution. But that's not quite the same as very best of his career. Personally, I'm going to wait and see if a better set gets released in the next few years.
