My 15th favourite male performance is #harrydeanstanton as #travishenderson in #paristexas 
#afilmaday 
When Stanton passed away, it was hard to accept. He lived a long life, sure, but he brought so much warmth and realism to so many of his roles that is severely lacking in many actors today. He truly was one of the last of his kind. In Paris, Texas, we may see the best example of what he could do.

For a good portion of the film, Travis doesn't talk. He keeps his words to himself. We even question his sanity. Once he opens up, he cant stop. He tells stories of old and new. We are told where he wishes to go: to right his wrongs and reunite with his life partner in the titular location. Once he finally finds his former wife, his confession towards the end of the film is so damn heartbreaking to hear that it's almost unbearable. Stanton doesn't need to shape shift or become a new person. He's so damn good at just being what the role requires at it's purest form. If your eyes don't well up here, you might be a gargoyle.

Barnes & Noble Criterion Collection 50% off sale pickups!

Terry Zwigoff's Ghost World is probably one of my top 10 favorite movies ever and naturally I had to own the Criterion blu ray! I love the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes and while the movie deviates a bit from the source material it still retains it's heart. 
Thora Birch and Steve Buscemi are at their best here playing the cynical, sardonic Enid & Seymour, who both seem to be stuck in different sorts of wanderlust. 
Also, Enid Coleslaw is my dream gal even though I'm sure she'd hate me :( Alex Cox's Repo Man is a punk rock masterpiece with a rad soundtrack and the late great Harry Dean Stanton pairing up with Emilio Estevez in one of his best performances. Lotsa punk rock lyrics sprinkled throughout the script.

Francis Ford Coppola's Rumble Fish is another underrated cult classic. 
It's dreamy/smoky B&W film noir atmosphere really adds to the movie with Matt Dillon and Mickey Rourke as troubled brothers in SE Hinton's classic tale of gangs, violence and ultimately tragedy.
