In this film Travis, played by Harry Dean Stanton, walks out of the desert and gradually tries to bring order into his life by recovering his relationship with his estranged wife and son. Despite Wenders’s fascination with the lonely open spaces of Americana, Travis is shown to find the meaning of his life in (some sort of) community with others. We will relate this to the Aristotelian idea that ‘man is a social animal’.
