Paris, Texas -- What Makes This Movie Great? (Episode 21)

Time for a tearjerker. It’s Wim Wenders’ 1984 classic, “Paris, Texas.” Paris, Texas is an Americana road trip movie involving a drifter who walks back into civilization. It’s got a great slide-guitar score by Ry Cooder, several great scenes of driving across southern America, and a fantastic final hour.
