Director Nicholas Ray is eager to complete a final film before his imminent death from cancer. Wim Wenders is working on his own film _Hammett (1983)_ in Hollywood, but flies to New York to help Ray realize his final wish. Ray's original intent is to make a fiction film about a dying painter who sails to China to find a cure for his disease. He and Wenders discuss this idea, but it is obviously unrealistic given Ray's state of health.


still waiting for ai this is a film i forced myself to watch in order to complete a speech in german about wim wender's is all about the death of a cancer ridden man.that is about all of the plot i could figure out. the images, as is usual with wender's films, are striking and pungent to the hollywood-movie-goer senses.the scenes in this movie are about the slowest i have ever seen.i did find a few rewarding scenes here and there scattered throughout the chaos.the graduate monkey, the speech at vassar college, and the alarm clock scene to mention a few. that is about all i know on this one. i give it two riders of the apocalypse.
