Paris, Texas

Paris, Texas ★★★★★

A beautiful film, a heartbreaking film, a formless yet structured film, a film about love, separation, family, and life. Stanton, Kinski, and Stockwell give stunning performances, the cinematography is top-notch, with strong color contrasts, the script is unadorned but authentic and perfect, the score is incredibly evocative, and Wenders directs with a focus on both landscape and faces that is a document of the Southwest and a testament to life.
