  • yeah, but i saw it in paris. youd have to see it in texas have any claim on it though a nastassja kinski anecdote will suffice.

    • some good movies on that list and some stinkers. laura and the third man are classic noir films. the cook the thief... i liked a lot at the time. got into greenaway for a bit as a result. never hear much about the sheltering sky. probably should revisit that some day. i have wild at heart on the dvr but i never dig in. was reading those henry miller books at the time so henry and june fit right in.

          • My mom and HDS both had the same music teacher a couple years apart in HS. He was a waiter (house boy) at her sorority at UK. 
            "Stanton had two younger brothers, Archie and Ralph, and a younger half-brother, Stanley McKnight. His family had a musical background. Stanton attended Lafayette High School[3] and the University of Kentucky in Lexington where he performed at the Guignol Theatre under the direction of British theater director Wallace Briggs,[4]"

Paris Texas is one of my favorite films of the past 40 years. Some trivia: The script was initially by Sam Shepard but according to Kit Carson, the other author, Shepard bailed on the project to "chase after Jessica Lange." so Carson finished the script as they shot. Carson's son Hunter (who's mother was Karen Black) plays the young boy and came up with the final line of dialogue for the film as they were shooting.
