Unfair review #5
Went to see Paris, Texas the other day. Didn't have to go far actually, it was on DVD at my house.
I'm pretty sure this is the first Wim Wenders movie I've seen, and I quite liked it.
It's quite sparse, in all ways, but it gets along OK. Crucially, it made me want to keep watching to see what happens.
The cinematography is beautiful, and there are some really great moments from all the characters.
Being who I am, I loved the dilapidated Ranchero the main character buys and drives from California to Texas - I'm sure it was chosen for the sybolism it provided, but to me it's also a great example of a great car.
This hasn't been much of a review, but it is an great film.
