It's a fitting heartfelt tribute to Ray.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A poignant and often painful film in which Wenders and the terminally ill Ray attempt to make a film together in the last days before Ray's death in 1979.

Wenders adds in some cruddy early-80s video from time to time, and the film is an odd mixture of powerful emotions and rambling nothingness.

Even with its painful contradictions and discomfitures, it's that current rarity: one for the heart.

Unquestionably the worst movie of Wim Wenders' career and indeed one of the worst movies ever made...

It is obviously a sincere homage from a younger director to the older man, but it remains dubious and smacks of exploitation.
