The State of Things DVD

| DVD

Director Wim Wenders' most corrosive statement on the art of filmmaking 'The State of Things' is a powerful journey into the underbelly of the American film industry. When his Hollywood producer disappears leaving the actors and crew on the Portugese set of a sci-fi thriller with no money or film director Friedrich Munro (Patrick Bauchau) travels to Hollywood to find him. What he uncovers is a shady world where criminals and moguls barely differ and the art of filmmaking is merely another money-making enterprise. The result is both visually arresting and one of the... best films about filmmaking ever made. [show more]

Director Wim Wenders bites the hand that feeds in this incisive commentary on the film industry at large. Finding himself and his crew financially adrift in Portugal, with no producer and no money to finish his film, director Friedrich Munro (Patrick Bauchau) heads for Hollywood to find a backer. But as he does the rounds of the studios in search of finance, Munro soon discovers that art counts for little in the land where box office success rules supreme.
