Paris, Texas

The way the story unfolds is one of the most mysterious and powerful things I've seen in a while. The mystery of where this man came from, his motivations. And the story that unfolds is a beautiful tale of the reconnection of a lost family. The thing that I mostly respect about this film is the way that it uses its tone. It could have been a wishy washy movie about a family coming together that is super cheesy. But instead it is that, but with bittersweet emotions. Not everything turns out ok in the end. But these characters accomplished what they wanted to do. In the best way possible. This is a hard film to pin down for me, it really just speaks to me on a raw emotional level. I want to definitely revisit in the future, it's really close to being in the all time favorite category.
