Sometimes something happens with a person in your life that is absolutely devastating, your world is completely flattened and you’re left adrift, wandering spiritually and unable to relate to anyone else. The desolation of the scenery in this film, the poor run-down towns in Texas, and the wide openness of the landscape as the little car drives through it mirrors this feeling of being lost after such an event. This is a film that wields a heavy emotional hammer, and it left me with a hollow feeling in my chest.
The pace is slow but it matches the weight of this guy’s past, and builds to an extraordinary scene, as he and his old lover communicate with the benefit of time having passed and through a mirror, saying the words which usually end up being unsaid, and coming to a kind of peace. There are scars which never completely heal but somehow we move on, and this film is a catharsis. There are so many other things to love about it too – Wim Wender’s use of light and color, Ry Cooder’s lonesome slide guitar, and Harry Dean Stanton’s sense of what it is to be broken. It’s a masterful, haunting work, one that will stick with you.
The Ultimate Anti-Romance.
I would say that Paris, Texas is not for everyone, but, truly, that can be said about every movie. But I will say this: fans of methodically paced, beautifully shot, existentially rooted, and purely experiential cinema will not be disappointed.
Paris, Texas is virtually my favorite movie, and a movie that, whether you like it or not, will leave some impact on you. It is a journey, an experience, an odyssey.
Yes, it is long. Yes, it is slow. Defined plot points? Please.
But what this movie does do is place into the mind of it’s lead character. Travis Henderson, an older man, gruff and worn out with age, wanders out of the Texas desert after missing from his family for four years. He is mute, and apparently unaware of who he is. His brother Walt finds him, and tries to rehabilitate him back into sanity. The film then covers Travis’s journey to reconnect with a past which he has long since forgotten. He reunites with his son, his sister in-law, and eventually, in a scene which I tear up just thinking about, his wife.
But that is all I will divulge about his wife. That is a scene which you really have to see to believe.
While this film really doesn’t rely on plot, it does have structure and tone. And what carries us through this mystical story is the unbelievably beautiful photography. We see the world as it should be seen: a starkly beautiful, but uncompromising, place. The use of color and motifs really makes this film a marvel to look at.
And then we get to performances. Everyone’s great, so I will focus on our two truly main characters. Harry Dean Stanton plays Travis, a gentle, kind man, that, despite having personal demons, is a great fatherly figure (fine, maybe he isn’t the best father…but there’s no denying he left an impact on his son’s life). And seeing Stanton bring this character to life in the most subtle and somber way possible is amazing. And then we have Natassja Kinski, who plays Jane, his wife. She doesn’t show up until the third act, and 95% percent of her performance takes place in one room. But Kinski’s portrayal of emotion…and her quiet, yet powerful demeanor…and the way she talks…god, it’s unbelievable. Stanton and Kinski have some of the best chemistry ever, which is even more impressive considering they’re never in the same room (see the movie…you’ll understand). In the end, these two carry the movie on their backs, and do an amazing job doing it.
You may not cry, but you will think about crying. You will think about all the sad moments in your life. And it will all be washed out of you by movie’s end. Believe me, I know this from personal experience. This movie is almost therapeutic in the way. Because the story is healing our own souls at the same time as it is healing Travis’s.
So. What’s more to say about Paris, Texas? It’s a beautiful movie, one that relies on photography and performances to tell it’s story, and a movie that portrays emotions on a master class level. And what do I mean by ‘Anti-Romance’? It’s not worth explaining here. See the movie, you’ll understand.
