Land of Plenty (2004) has a lot going for it ... It's yet other amazingly flavoursome and discipline motion picture by the one and solitary Wim Wenders, the Jim Jarmoush of Germany.
Where to begin?...

We of curriculum evoke Michelle Williams as the overwrought mate in the Brokeback Mountain. She was so sincere in that stroppy duty as the Midwest married woman caught up in a empathy that panicked her hair to her connective tissue.
Here Williams acting a utterly contrary qualities - the faithful angel difficult to do hot. Williams and John Diehl as her uncle and misguided vigilance man subject are correct to a condemn. I know I'll be sounding to see their opposite occupation as good.
(And the fact that Williams is the utmost beautiful Dove-girl-next-door you'll of all time see does not distress at all. Just look at that obverse...)Post ads:

Then comes Wenders's idiosyncratic pinch on the pole 9-11 psychosis that we are all flesh and blood on a regular principle... codification chromatic... codification red... those haunting descriptions of airplanes weighed down beside passengers and jet gasoline on its last legs into skyscrapers... ahhh, it's not casual to take that sadness, that anger, that knowledge concern beside no suspension in display.
And we see that in Diehl's part - an ex-Marine who decides to proceeds things into his own custody and wipe down the motherland from all vermin, particularly those that impairment covered towels for vesture. Period.
But of course of study to have a bosom untouched of fondness for the country, the flag, mom and the apple pie is not adequate. This is a elaborate world we are live in and things are just what they appear to be. Our ex-Marine finds it out the complex way...
The ending has every redundant pedagogy and exposition but general this is a swell story, acted out and directed all right. It approaches a extremely herculean premise through the corrupt filtering of two souls - one nowhere to be found in the world, and the different in set torture.
This is not a motion picture you'll like if you are a rays glad personality with no worries in life. You are warned.
However, if you similar this one like I did, you may possibly also impoverishment to bank check out two separate grotesque Wenders films:
Wings of Desire and Don't Come Knocking
Good art redeems our man. Land of Plenty does that near flying colors, minus awkward itself.
