  1. Yeah, I’m not buying this interpretation of the ending at all.

    • What do you disagree with? And how do you read the ending?

      • I’d be intrigued to hear an alternative interpretation, as I feel Travis has it just right. Or at least, what I’ve always considered

  2. It has been several years ago that I rented the movie available on VHS at the time. I spent .99 cents and two hours of my life on this movie. I have asked people from Paris Texas what the movie meant. I get the same response from everyone. They throw their hands up and Reply PLOT ?????????????????????????.
