    The seven best movies set in Texas

    7) A Perfect World - In a perfect world, Kevin Costner would've just stopped appearing in movies after making this small gem.

    6) Bonnie and Clyde - Although it's not entirely set in Texas, the hyperviolent ending and Faye Dunaway's iconic sexuality ensure Bonnie and Clyde a spot on this list.

    5) Dazed and Confused - Is it a backhanded compliment to say this is Ben Affleck's best movie? Fair enough. Then I'll aim higher and say this dead-on portrait of small town high school is my fourth favorite Richard Linklater, which is saying a lot.

    4) Lone Star - Besides it being John Sayles' deepest work and featuring his best cast, it also boasts one of my favorite closing lines in film.

    3) Days of Heaven - Efforts like this help to explain how Terence Malick can take off twenty years between movies and still keep a dedicated cult of fans enthralled.

    2) Paris, Texas - There are so many things I could praise about Paris, Texas, from the acting to the writing to its unusual structure. But instead, I'll just say the colors are so gorgeous that they alone deserve a viewing.

    1) The Last Picture Show - In a town where nothing seems to change, suddenly, everything is changing. Relationships are fracutring, teenagers are awkwardly fumbling toward adulthood, the people we always imagined as fixtures are one day gone. The only thing that hasn't changed is how vividly and memorably this movie captures it all.

    Mixtape for my sweetheart, the drunk #1

    1) "Pocketful of Money" - Jens Lekman from Oh You're So Silent, Jens
    2) "Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken?" - Lloyd Cole and the Commotions from Rattlesnakes
    3) "The Farm" - Howe Gelb from 'Sno Angel Like You
    4) "Blind Luck" - The Constantines from The Modern Sinner, Nervous Man EP
    5) "Wings" - Josh Ritter from Hello Starling
    6) "Bloodhounds On My Trail" - Black Angels from Passover
    7) "Continuation" - John Vanderslice from Pixel Revolt
    8) "Sacramento & Polk" - Alejandro Escovedo from The Boxing Mirror
    9) "30 Gallon Tank" - Spoon from A Series of Sneaks
    10) "All Dolled-Up In Straps" - The National from Cherry Tree EP
    11) "They Took A Vote And Said No" - Sunset Rubdown from Shut Up I Am Dreaming
    12) "Bankrupt On Selling" - Modest Mouse from The Lonesome Crowded West
    13) "The Smallest Bones" - Castanets from Cathedral
