A man attempts unbimboification under the watchful eyes of Nixon
Throughout Paris, Texas, Travis' loneliness pervades. Whether it's meeting him as he wanders the Texas expanse or following him attempt to reform human connection, his desolation never shakes. Similarly, the film commands a singular tonality. Scenes and characters vary greatly in setting, mood, and behavior, but every piece entwines to depict the universal loneliness of love in one of the most fascinating character studies I've ever seen.
