Peering in: A Look into the Life of Harry Dean Stanton

It took director Sophie Huber one year to convince Harry Dean Stanton to be the subject of her documentary. He finally complied but his reluctance, his aversion to revealing himself, comes through his every word, through every long exhale from his cigarette. Or maybe that’s just who he is. Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction paints an intricate portrait of a man who has lived life on his own terms, showing what has been gained, and what has been lost.

Stanton is in his 80s now, with over a half century of experience in Hollywood behind him. He began as a character actor and over the years won the affection of directors like David Lynch and Wim Wenders, the latter putting him in his singular prominent leading role, Paris, Texas. That film comes to act as a microcosm for Stanton and his personal life. »
