The third film I consider a favourite that I don't currently own is a drama that is part road movie. This is #paristexas by #wimwenders and starring #harrydeanstanton #nastassjakinski and #deanstockwell with a screenplay by #samshepard and #lmkitcarson
This is a mostly quiet film that takes it's time to get you invested with a lead character that doesn't talk for nearly a third of the film. Once Travis opens up, he cannot stop. His open heart, once closed, overflows. He has a mission to find his sweetheart from yesteryear. He wishes to be the good dad he never was.
Once we get towards the end, it's almost a whole new film that is surreal in nature. The conversation between phones in this facility marks Jane as a being from another land, another timeline, another world. It is so slight but so clever because we begin to feel the impact almost immediately in a way most films don't shape up to. Once we get to the final story being told, not an eye will be dry.
