Paris, Texas is a western, of course, and a road movie, too - it's Wim Wenders' loose remake of The Searchers, with Harry Dean Stanton as the wanderer who appears out of nowhere to seek out his estranged wife (Nastassja Kinski, above). Ry Cooder's dusty, twangy score, and the pain in the creases of Stanton's face, will stay in your head forever. I think it's the last great film that Wenders made.
