I watched Wim Wenders’ classic Paris, Texas for the first time this weekend and absolutely loved it. It’s out this week on Blu-ray and I have written a review for Flick Feast:
Wim Wenders’ masterpiece Paris, Texas arrives on Blu-ray this week and it remains a truly unique, haunting and affecting movie from the German director.
The film starts with a dazed and confused man, who we later learn is called Travis (Harry Dean Stanton), emerging from the barren desert wilderness of Texas before collapsing at a truck stop in need of medical attention. His brother Walt (Dean Stockwell) is contacted and drives from LA to pick Travis up and bring him home. Travis has been missing for four years and appears unaware of who he is and what has happened to him. As they drive home, Walt explains to Travis that he had a wife and child who he walked out on. A consequence of his leaving was that his wife, Jane (Nastassja Kinski) felt unable to raise a child alone and so Hunter (Hunter Carson) was brought up by Walt and his wife Anne (Aurore Clement)
