Paris, Texas


Travis (Harry Dean Stanton) wanders around trying to find the tendrils of what was once his life. Sometimes even when you find it, it's best left alone. A film about a straight lines between people and why they are erased. Sparse and gentle in movement with a beat that follows the recovering mind of Travis. Wim Wenders directs and Ry Cooder slides his way through the flick.

Rating: * * +
