Paris, Texas (1984)
Director: Wim Wenders
As much as I admire the leader of the New German cinema movement of the sixties and seventies, R.W. Fassbinder, and as much as I admire, probably the best and most important director in that movement Werner Herzog, if I actually had to pick a favorite New German Director, and one of my favorite directors of all-time, it’d have to be Wim Wenders. I rank his film ‘Wings of Desire‘ among the Ten best films ever made, and all his films–even his less-than-stellar ones–all have this intuit sense to them. It’s not empathy; it’s almost spiritual. While Herzog is constantly »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

With his hang dog demeanor and distinctive voice, Stanton made a mark in his career, and appeared in character roles for notable films such as “Cool Hand Luke” (1967), “Kelly’s Heroes” (1970), “The Godfather Part II” (1974), “Alien” (1979), “Escape From New York” (1981), “Pretty in Pink” (1986) and “Last Temptation of Christ” (1988). He had bigger and more up front roles in “Repo Man” (1984), “Paris, Texas” (1984), “Wild at Heart” (1990), “The Straight Story” (1999), “The Green Mile” (1999) and the upcoming “Lucky” (2017).

The character actor with the most character. arely does a character actor, in that unsung profession, achieve the renown they deserve during their lifetime. Harry Dean Stanton had such talent, longevity, and perseverance that it was impossible to ignore him. Our memorial piece said a lot, but watching him can scratch an otherwise unreachable itch. […]

Your obituary for Harry Dean Stanton (18 September) mispunctuates the title of the TV series Have Gun – Will Travel by substituting a comma for the dash. This had a curious effect on the list of TV horse operas Stanton acted in: “Laramie, The Gun, Have Gun, Will Travel, Bonanza and Rawhide.” Even the Oxford comma, which coincidentally played a part in Sunday’s episode of Strike, can’t come to our rescue with that one, though it could have helped with Bonanza and Rawhide.
• Boris Johnson must know that birds do not sing in the nest (Report, 20 September). It is a place of secrecy and security. It is the immature that call out, eager to be fed. This is especially true if an over-sized cuckoo is among them, ensuring that they are ejected and crash to the ground below. »
Harry Dean Stanton was an acting legend who insisted he didn’t act. It was his touchstone. It was horse shit. I’ll give you examples.
We did a reading of “Lucky.” We wanted to hear the piece out loud and give our investors a chance to hear it. Harry came. One of the agreements made for his participation, of course, was that he could smoke onstage. Apologies to the fire marshall.
As we began, Harry’s voice was weak, his reading slow. Hell, the print in his script was so big, he had to turn the page every half sentence. I was more than worried that this was going to scare off our investors.
Then we got to the scene in the alley. The person reading screen directions described the alleys’ red lights. »

The passing of Harry Dean Stanton on September 15th had fans and critics alike remembering him in his many roles over the last couple of decades. A common perspective of his movie career is that it did not really begin until he reached the age of 58 with the popularity of the movie Paris, Texas. But there were many more performances that built his reputation before that. Moviegoers who only follow the stars are likely to have missed some of his movies. Technically known as a character actor, he would often be the glue that held the set together. Here

Harry Dean Stanton is no longer with us as of Friday, but the Harry Dean Stanton Fest will go on, the annual event’s founder told TheWrap on Monday. “We will be proceeding with the festival as scheduled. In fact, it feels more important to do so now than ever. Usually we celebrate his work, but this year we will celebrate his life,” Lucy Jones, founder of the annual Lexington, Kentucky-based fest said. Jones added that, while the festival made its programming choices months in advance, some of them will carry a particular resonance following Stanton’s death, culminating with the screening of. »

One of the great character actors in movies, the legendarily laconic and sad-eyed Harry Dean Stanton passed away this weekend at the age of 91. He possessed the recognizable hound dog face the average moviegoer might recognize as “that guy.” For us cinephiles we knew him as a kind of cinematic legend, like a Redwood tree that would never fall. Even in his 90s, Stanton didn’t look like he was ever slowing down.

Last Friday, character actor extraordinaire Harry Dean Stanton left us, at the age of 91. Even though he got his first television role at age thirty, his career in front of the camera spans sixty years and is a hair's breadth shy of containing 200 titles. And many of those are absolute classics (this shot is from the recent season of Twin Peaks). That is quite a treasure trove of titles to pick from, so let's make this article our last hats-off to the man. What is your favorite performance by Harry Dean Stanton? Chime in, in the comments below!...

The 2017 Emmys In Memoriam segment has been called out for a perceived flub.
Following the touching memorial montage of recently deceased Hollywood stars, a slew of viewers took to social media to point out a few forgotten names.

The 2017 Emmy Awards paid tribute to many actors who lost their lives over the last year, but they also left off many actors as well. Twitter is exploding right now after Harry Dean Stanton, Charlie Murphy and Frank Vincent were among those left out of the In Memoriam tribute. "Pretty sure Harry Dean Stanton just got snubbed "In Memoriam" at the #Emmys," one Twitter user wrote. Another tweet reads, "Ummm did they just leave Harry Dean Stanton out of the In Memoriam tribute on @TheEmmys ?!? I know he just passed but the man is a legend!" Another Twitter user noted that Murphy wasn't included, saying, "Charlie Murphy wasn't included in the #Emmys »
No awards show’s “In Memoriam” segment can include everyone lost in the last year, but this year’s Emmys contained some obvious omissions, including comedy icon and Civil Rights activist Dick Gregory, “Chappelle’s Show” star Charlie Murphy, Erin Moran and Harry Dean Stanton — who died Friday. Stanton is somewhat understandable, given how recently he died — there might not have been time to update the segment before the show. The same is true of “Sopranos” star Frank Vincent, who died last week. But many on Twitter were surprised and disappointed by the other omissions. Some drew a contrast between the omission. »
