Trailers from Hell Heads to ‘Paris, Texas’

Trailers from Hell Heads to 'Paris, Texas'

A Criterion Grab Bag! continues at Trailers from Hell, with director Karyn Kusama introducing Wim Wenders’ classic “Paris, Texas.”

Wenders’ 1984 French-German coproduction features a
typically (for Wenders) unconventional cast, including the great Harry Dean
Stanton as an amnesiac who enlists his brother (Dean Stockwell) in a search for
Stanton’s runaway wife played by Nastassja Kinski. Wenders brings a poker-faced
European sensibility to the backwaters of America with compelling results. The
stellar crew includes the cinematographer Robby Muller and music from Ry
Cooder, which has proven highly influential.
