Wenders’ Palme d’Or-winner features contributions from several artists at the top of their game—screenwriter Sam Shepard, cameraman Robby Müller, composer Ry Cooder—but it’s Stanton’s haunting lead performance that lingers most. As a taciturn drifter returning to reconnect with his scattered family, Stanton conveys decades of heartbreak with a subtlety and grace worthy of Chaplin.

A film by Wim Wenders
