Twelve Miles to Toma (2004)

Twelve Miles to Toma is Wim Wenders’s contribution to Ten Minutes Older: The Trumpet. Had his name not appeared in connection with the film I would have easily mistaken this for a slick, shallow, student film, the sort routinely cranked out by are so-called finer learning institutions. Nothing more than a ticking clock and some trippy effects, this pointless tale of a man racing to medical clinic after ingesting drug laced brownies almost makes me forget that Wenders was capable of making a good film. It leaves me scared to re-visit Paris, Texas.
