    A striking film that ends in quite a moving way. Beautifully shot and scored, especially for the first half hour, taking full advantage of the wilds of Texas. My problems with it are entirely related to the story, which felt very artificial, with characters acting in a manner that served the script rather than a realistic way. Grand metaphors and abstract passions were elevated over a more humanistic realism. 4 years 4 months ago

    A beautiful story of self-sacrifice; sometimes the best way to help those you love is to get the fuck away from them. Wender's direction is confidently paced, always allowing a scene to go on as long as it needs to. The cinematography is gorgeous without drawing too much attention to itself. I was drawn in to the simple story and fascinated by Stanton's character; his performance is really something special. He has a wise but sad presence that's perfect for this role. What a great movie. 3 years 3 months ago
