Bluterion Dept.

Criteron's newest wave of Blu-ray releases: Federico Fellini's , Steven Soderbergh's Che, and Wim Wenders's Paris, Texas. I actually had a review planned for Paris, Texas but I think I'll hold off until the new edition is out.

Paris, Texas has colossal personal significance. I haven't seen the movie since it was released on VHS all those years ago, and the monologue near the end ("I knew these people...", on the soundtrack album, with Ry Cooder's elegiac music) is easily my favorite scene of its kind from any film.

Ebert's review (and his retrospective) is a fine encapsulation of what makes the film so special.
