Just got done with Party Girl, Ray's last proper studio effort. A retro-gangster film with noir undertones, ultra-lavish production values, and Cyd Charisse very nearly ruining the day with monotone line readings in "Sultry Schoolmarm" mode. However once the film locks in, you don't care as much (two Charisse dance solos, which push code standards for teh sexy, help).

Does Ray actually get a directorial credit on 'Lightning Over Water' (I've never seen it)?
wenders sez in the commentary that ray was 'directing' whenever wim was on screen (& vice versa) but idk
it's worth seeing tho ray is so frail & kinda hazy from painkillers in a lot of it; in a weird way it struck me as similar to synecdoche, ny
