Reel Reviews – Paris Texas

Paris, Texas DVD

Reel Review #21: “I knew these people… These two people. They were in love with each other. The girl was… very young, about seventeen or eighteen, I guess. And the guy was… quite a bit older. He was kind of raggedy and wild. And she was very beautiful, you know?” A great Wim Wenders film and the Palme d’Or winner at Cannes in 1984. I go a bit longer on this one only because of my pure enthusiasm for this great film. Check it out.

    thanks for the “paris, texas” review. i’ve been meaning to ask you to do a review of wenders’ 1991 “until the end of the world” which is probably harder to find than “paris, texas.” UTEOTW is a film that still rattles around in my head – i’m lucky enough to own it on LD and i’m waiting for the day when it gets reissued (as a director’s cut?) on DVD. most people know this film better for its soundtrack, which stands on its own in some ways:

    some links re: the film here:

    we’ve passed 1999 so the story has lost a little over time but i still find it totally engrossing. and robby muller does another fantastic job.

    keep up the good work.

    Scott, thanks for the suggestion. I have never seen that film, but found what I read very interesting. It is now on my radar. Thanks!

    Great podcast, definately will check this one out. I also loved Million Dollar Hotel, so I’ll probably love this one too. It’s available at amazon.co.uk and play.com for those in Europe, already put it in my shopping cart ;).

    Keep up the great work.

    I’ve added this one to Netflix. I’m a huge Natasha fan… wow what a hottie. And a terrific actress too!

    Wow your podcast(discovered it through dvdtalk.com) brought back my memories of a great film. I haven’t seen the film in a long time. I just remember the opening shot coupled with Ry Cooder’s amazing soundtrack and how blown away I was by Travis walking in the desert….that and the performance of the kid who played Hunter. I love the soundtrack. It is out in my car right now. I just discovered your podcast and am looking forward to downloading them all. Keep up the good work.

    Love this movie,

    I remember listening to your reviews back in 2005 when I was fifteen. I really loved your show back in the day, and I am so glad you turned me on to this film. I re watched it last night and I came over to listen to your review again. Hope all is well. Thanks for keeping these reviews online.

    Getting to the top, especially if the amount of competition for your
    specific keywords is high, you might want to focus on other techniques
    to help you in the interim and that will also assist you with your rankings, such as link building.
    As you can figure out, backlink building is a continual process in Seo.
    They quickly build a client base for their services or products and
    quickly recoup their expenses – realizing in the long run these leads
    will generate huge profits.

    At the comfort of your home, you can shop whatever things you may need by
    simple clicking your computer mouse. Customize the
    decorative text box on the front with the couple’s names and their wedding date.

    Decorate these items with balloons and streamers
    to match the shower theme.

    You could potentially definitely visit skills in the task you’re writing. The earth wants far more fervent authors just like you that usually are not afraid to cover that they imagine. On a regular basis follow ones soul.
