Discover one of cult actor Harry Dean Stanton's most memorable performances in the 1984 Palme d'Or-winner 'Paris, Texas'.
This unusual road movie, with screenplay by acclaimed playwright Sam Shepard, tells the tale of Travis, a man lost in his own private hell. Presumed dead for four years, he reappears from the desert on the Mexico border, world-weary and an amnesiac.
With extraordinary performances from Harry Dean Stanton as Travis and Natassja Kinski as Jane, the film also boasts a soundtrack by Wender's long time friend Ry Cooder.
"Cannes has rewarded many a great film, but none that is quite so permanently, ever-retrievably embedded in my sense memory" - Guy Lodge, The Guardian
