Paris, Texas ★★★★★

Shepard twists the revenge thtiller on its head and Wenders gives an astoundingly touching masterclass of how to fully explore cinematic mise-en-scène to further portray the transcendental search for redemption of a broken man. One of those movies where the monumental emotional weight and all the immaculate care put in every single technical aspect of the filmmaking are categorically one thing, without a single moment of conflict between them both. Stanton and Kinski give miraculously powerful and understated performances. Their scenes 'together' don't exceed the reputation of the picture itself for no reason, it's just so immensely captivating it seems completely devoided from the very notions of time, space and sound that guide our existence, putting the audience in a state of simultaneous numbness and endless fascination.
