    ★★★★

    This is a great movie, but the sequence of animal cruelty in it deters me from really recommending this to people.

Even the tragedies are small, affecting only one or two people negatively and not at all in a permanent way. All things that would normally leave a movie with its thumb out looking for viewers to pick it up.

    However, I’m going to judge “Paris,Texas” on a different metric because the emotional movements…
