Paris, Texas








Director - Wim Wenders

Genre - Drama


An unhurried, sentimental dissection of a love gone wrong. Harry Dean Stanton plays the unlikely lead with an understated but sturdy performance, alongside the always sensual Nastassja Kinski. The cinematography is to die for at times, gently encompassing the film with its romanticized version of America. Take heed though that this indie cult favorite by Wim Wenders is not geared towards those spoilt on entertainment-based cinema.

3.5 STARS!

A fine film, largely bolstered by the strength of its performances. The lengthy scene with the one-way mirror is amazing.
