Wim Wenders on Filmmaking

There is a brilliant article on MovieMaker that you should see if you care about such things. It’s titled: Wim Wenders’ 50 (that’s right, 50) Golden Rules of Moviemaking. This is the best such list I’ve seen in a long, long time, succinct and fun. Wenders’ rules run from hilarious to wise, blunt to subtle, and simple to intricate. I wonder what stories lie behind gems like:

18. The more money you have the more you can do with it, sure. But the less you can say with it.”


“42. Don’t adapt novels.”
