This week's reviewed movie is:
Three Burials




Gene the Barber

Gordie the Barber



In a Texas/Mexico border town, ranch hand Pete Perkins, played by Tommy Lee Jones, vows to bring his best friend's killer to justice.

There's lots of black fun comedy in the last part when he takes his dead friend home to Mexico on horses.

This is Jones' first directing and starring role in his own major film, and his passion shows in every frame.

Just ignore the rotten title and sit back and enjoy this well-done clever flashback script. I sure did.

A border patrol agent gets a taste of old-fashion frontier justice in Tommy Lee Jones' directorial debut, a dark tale of redemption filled with plenty of ghoulish humor.

It's a film about time, killing time, and, yes, killing--but it's also about friendship, boredom, and the things people do just to get along.

All & all a strange odyssey.

Tommy Lee Jones stars as a Texas rancher, who is seeking a strange and unusual restitution from the border guard that was responsible for his best friend's death.

The movie involves many things. It's a present-day Western, a commentary on border politics, a dark comedy, and a revenge thriller that also mixes loyalty & honor with some crazy madness.

I liked the ending justice.
