Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road

(1984) dir Wim Wenders w/Harry Dean Stanton, Dean Stockwell, Nastassja Kinski [148 min; DCP]
Wenders brings his keen eye for landscape to the American Southwest in PARIS, TEXAS, a profoundly moving character study written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard. PARIS, TEXAS follows the mysterious, nearly mute drifter Travis (a magnificent Harry Dean Stanton, whose face is a landscape all its own) as he tries to reconnect with his young son, living with his brother (Stockwell) in Los Angeles, and his missing wife (Kinski). From this simple setup, Wenders and Shepard produce a powerful statement on codes of masculinity and the myth of the American family, as well as an exquisite visual exploration of a vast, crumbling world of canyons and neon. – The Criterion Collection

“A defiantly individual film… It is true, deep, and brilliant.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
