The one really good thing that came from hearing Smith's testimony on the making of 'Dogma' was finding out that the idea for costuming the angels in something distinctive, like hooded sweatshirts, came from Wim Wenders' film 'Wings of Desire.' Wenders' American movie 'Paris Texas' was one of my all time favorites. So I bought the DVD of 'Wings of Desire'....and for anyone who's seen it, you know the rest. If you haven't seen it, then you must and this is your call to action.
