A Slow Trip that doesn't get there


It may be intended as a symbolic journey, but it doesn't carry us with it and it never gets to Paris.Texas

Full review

The mystery and promise of the opening with Travis appearing from the desert is not satisfyingly resolved. Some of it is good to look at, and Harry Dean Stanton can act ok, but for the most part it is just not very interesting.
