Bobak Kalhor Director's Note

user
The Shah of Iran died on July 27th 1980, 557 days after being forced from his peacock throne into exile.

It is puzzling why the true history of the 1979 Revolution in Iran, America’s involvement in that affair, and the comprehensive story surrounding the fall of the Pahlavi monarchy has yet to be accurately told. It may be owed to the Shah’s own insecurities in keeping importa...

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Harry Dean Stanton, who died Friday, Sept. 15 at age 91, was in the first movie I ever covered as a film reviewer. On Monday, Feb. 2, 1985, the New Mexico Daily Lobo in Albuquerque published a halting, lukewarm review of Wim Wenders' PARIS, TEXAS. It was a college try at doing this sort of thing, but years later, what strikes me about Harry Dean Stanton is that a lot of us  lived the quirky way he did on screen....
