Our Daily Free Stream: Wim Wenders - Paris Texas. Oder wer liebt nicht Nastassja Kinski? - Ein Mann, der aus der Wüste kommt. Ganz allein, ohne Zukunft und ohne Vergangenheit. Kurz vor dem Verdursten stösst er auf eine Baracke, in der ein deutscher Exilant ihn versorgt. Der Deutsche nimmt die Brieftasche des Fremden, um seine Identität zu erfahren und ruft den Bruder an. Als ich diese ersten Minuten von Paris Texas zum ersten Mal gesehen hatte, konnte ich mir nicht vorstellen, wie der Film nun weitergehen würde. Wer viele Filme sieht, kennt diese Gefühl: Ganz gleich, ob ein Werk grossartig ist oder nicht, meistens weiss man recht schnell, was als nächstes geschehen wird. Bei Paris Texas ist das anders und das allein macht Wenders Film so faszinierend. Es scheint, als betrachten wir ein Bi...

Paris, Texas

“I'm not afraid of heights. I'm afraid of fallin.” This has elements of a powerful epic sublime drama, western settings and an entertaining human disconnection. A story that focuses on Travis Henderson (Harry Dean Stanton) and brother Walt Henderson (Dean Stockwell). Walt inquires Travis as to what happened for 4 years but doesn't speak at all. The first word Travis says is Paris. Hunter meets Travis after four years of absence and tries to avoid him.

The picture had so many brilliant quotes: "Your living with people now." – Walt, "He's got to get tired sometime." - Anne , "Why can't he do anything?" – Hunter, "It's just the way it is" “But a funny thing started to happen, he didn't even notice it at first, she started to change.” - Travis and "The pain of seeing him grow up and...

"Paris, Texas" by Yojimbo

A man wordlessly stumbles out of the desert after disappearing without a trace four years previously and sets about reclaiming his lost family. Harry Dean Stanton is one of those faces that everyone knows without knowing they know; an understated and remarkable character actor who took very few lead roles. His wonderfully understated performance is the centrepiece to Wim Wenders' road movie dealing with love and loss that's chock full of beautiful imagery. In fact it's a little ironic that it took a German to capture so completely the "feel" of middle America but this piece of audio-visual poetry is one of the purest examples of mainstream cinema as an art form. No-one could fail to be captivated by his scenes with estranged wife Nastassja Kinski whose first appearance on screen has becom...

The film of the 80's

A truly beautiful film charting the loss, alienation, isolation of Travis, who we first see walking the desert with scraggy beard and dead eyes, and his slow redemption. This film is about loss, forgiveness and redemption, told with searing honesty and with nuanced light touches throughout, Wenders delivers one of his most memorable and commercial films. Winner of the Palme d'or in 1984, Paris, Texas represents a seminal moment in Wenders career, with music from Ry Cooder and a script by Sam Shepard, everything blends together to make a deeply personal and touching film.

A simple story about one man's attempt to re-unite his separated family, Paris, Texas lulls it's viewer in to submission with one gorgeous scene after another (if you don't cry, or least choke-up, at the scene wher...
