Watch: Why Wim Wenders’ ‘Paris, Texas’ Makes Karyn Kusama Cry

Watch: Why Wim Wenders' 'Paris, Texas' Makes Karyn Kusama Cry

Wim Wenders’ fatalistic road movie stars Harry Dean Stanton as an amnesiac who wanders Texas in search of his lost wife. Dean Stockwell co-stars as Stanton’s estranged brother and Nastassja Kinski is Stanton’s runaway bride. Graced with a keenly literate script by L.M. Kit Carson and Sam Shepard, the film is made complete by Ry Cooder’s bluesy dust-bowl score. The film won the Palme d’Or at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival.
