How does that work? With the paper? Is it on DVD or something? A film of this standard to come free with the paper is just bizarre. I mean it's *great* that they did that but pretty wild considering the film.

Wow. 'Wow' because this is not only one of my all-time favourite films (top three I'd say) but it is one of the best films ever made. I know that's an over-used phrase by everyone but in this case I mean it.

When it comes to Paris, Texas, Wenders is my hero. The cinematography is truly superb. The pacing of the story is great. There's just so many good elements to this film and Kinski? Well what can one say :)

Anyone who loves film, or art generally should be putting it on their must-see list.

yeah i know i was very pleasantly surprised.
just what i needed for a hungover drizzly saturday morning.
wenders really does give you the time and space to care about the characters.
i was in bits by the end.

it's a dvd, just the film, no extras.
it's one of the advantages of the newspaper circulation wars
here in the uk.

what are the other two films in your top three btw?

Gee well that's kinda hard to say now come to think of it. It's like saying my favorite music is 'x' which I can't really because I like different styles which you can't compare so maybe I shouldn't have said that ;)

I mean I could name the first two which are Hitchcock's Rear Window and this one. The third I'm not so sure about because as with music I like films from different genres for different reasons. I like the work of Akira Kurosawa's from the 1950's Japanese films and the more modern style Chinese works like Hero from Yimou Zhang. Mainly because of their visual content with the latter and a number of reasons with the former. As working in the visual arts for so long now I guess I'm attracted to cinematography more than anything. Though I realise and appreciate all the elements such as the music and dialogue that go together to create the feel, or just as important the 'spaces in between' without music or dialogue. That's where a film like Paris, Texas is so masterful.
