The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick

101 minutes 1972

Wim Wenders's first mature film (1972), based on Peter Handke's novel about a soccer player who kills a young woman for no good reason and wanders off into the German provinces, less to escape the police than to find himself. Wenders's refusal to allow any psychological insight renders the film intriguingly obscure; it's all on the surface, yet the surface remains unruffled. In German with subtitles.
