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 Harry Dean Stanton’s haunting lead performance that lingers most. As a taciturn drifter returning to reconnect with his scattered family, he conveys decades of heartbreak with a subtlety and grace worthy of Chaplin. (Also Starring Harry Dean Stanton)
