I don't know what I loved most about this film. It could be the Texas vistas, or the music by Ry Cooder, the brilliant script by Sam Shepard, or the achingly beautiful performances by Kinski and Stanton. I wished I hadn't waited so long to see it.

Watching the newly restored version is like seeing the film for the first time. The clarity of the image is amazing. An unforgettable film.
