PARIS, TEXAS: The "Anti-80's" Film Where Nothing Happens, But A Lot is Going On.

THE GENTLE PULL:

German director Wim Wenders’ 1984 film “Paris, Texas” is a piece of cinema that, for reasons unknown even to my own self -at least, until my most recent viewing, I have returned to again and again.  6,173 more words

Paris, Texas (1984)

A man wordlessly stumbles out of the desert after disappearing without a trace four years previously and sets about reclaiming his lost family.

Robby Müller: Wenders' Cinematographer Retrospective

“Dutch cinematographer Robby Müller has given us some of the most transcendent images ever captured on-screen. Since beginning his career in the late sixties, he has lensed a wealth of indelible moments—from Harry Dean Stanton wandering alone through the vast Southwestern desert in Wim Wenders’s Paris, Texas to the jailbirds of Jim Jarmusch’s Down by Law on their odyssey through the lush Louisiana bayou.
