Notes:
Restored version. “Paris, Texas” (1984) isn’t just an epic drama that won the Palm d’Or at Cannes; nowadays it feels curiously in step with the current culture’s ongoing American heritage trip. Shot largely in the Southwest, the film is a paean to America the Authentic: ghost towns, cuffed jeans, the highway, the mustache, the desert landscape, Marlboros, leather boots, chamois shirts, motels, Super-8 home movies, railroad tracks. - NY Times Supplemental features include: audio commentary by Wim Wenders; deleted scenes; footage of Wim Wenders and Nastassja Kinski at Cannes
