    These two artists created some finest, most enduring films out there. "Kings Of The Road" remains so close to my heart for many reasons, but "Paris, Texas" is the supreme example of all the right elements that clicked in unison to create a classic portrait of loneliness and yearning. I treasure my Criterion copy of "Paris, Texas" and make it point to watch it at least once a year and enlist others to recognize its brilliance.

    Still 9 of 25 is from Alice in the Cities, not Kings of the Road. (No stills from Until the End of the World?) Robby Müller's works with Wim Wenders are some of my most favorite works in all of cinema, somehow managing to capture such intangible concepts as loneliness and yearning in moving pictures. Thank you for bringing these films into the collection.
