Don't Come Knocking
A craggy cowboy (Sam Shepard) flies on horseback through the desert. The camera pulls back to reveal a film set; our cowboy is a western star gone AWOL. That's the brilliant opener for a shaggy comic drama directed by Wim Wenders and written by Shepard. Don't will either charm you with its laconic loopiness or leave you bored. Jessica Lange and Eva Marie Saint costar. (R)
