In the Fold – Paris, Texas – Art House Western – movie analysis

In memory of Harry Dean Stanton and Robbie Muller.

One of Jake’s favorite films is Paris, Texas so he got Mike to talk about it while folding some laundry. Paris, Texas is directed by Wim Wenders and stars Harry Dean Stanton as Travis Henderson who wanders out of the desert. We learn about his past and he rediscovers the world, and his family meeting his brother played by Dean Stockwell. The cinematographer was Robby Muller. He used the natural florescent green to give the film it’s iconic look. It is a slow film without a traditional narrative structure and ending, but it’s intriguing, hypnotic, and well worth the watch for the clever film making that drives the story along.
