—01. Bruno Ganz as Jonathan Zimmermann.
Wim Wenders has made a number of masterpieces during his long career, but one my favourite films from the German director is The American Friend, starring Dennis Hopper and Bruno Ganz. This late 1970s picture, loosely based on Patricia Highsmith's novel Ripley's Game, has now been deemed worthy of the lavish Criterion treatment. Due to be released on January 12th, 2016, it is available for preorder and I'd highly recommend grabbing a copy. If you need convincing check out the trailer or read my colleague’s review in the latest issue of Inventory.
