Paris, Texas

Paris, Texas ★★★★★

"And for the first time, he wished he were far away. Lost in a deep, vast country where nobody knew him. Somewhere without language or streets. And he dreamed about this place without knowing its name."

So much of Paris, Texas is noteworthy, from the score, to the performances, to the landscapes. I'd like to single out Wenders' usage of color. Oftentimes with movies set in Texas and the southwest, the colors are earthy and subtle, but here the colors really stand out in a way that would be jarring in a lesser film. Here, however, they add to the themes and are fundamentally important to what Paris, Texas is trying to say. I was really moved by this film.
