Why is it taking so long for this film to reach the US? I mean, think about it:
1) directed by Wim Wenders, arguably one of the best directors of the 20th century, coming fresh off the success of BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB
2) stars Mel Gibson (ie. has star power)
3) is in English (critical for American audiences)
4) soundtrack by Bono + U2
What more do you need?
