i shall be the first to do a review having caught this at my local arthouse. this a gentle low key piece but it also touches on darker aspects of living in alabama with stacey keaches ( whatever happened to him?) dodgy sheriff some good blues and rock and roll music but there really isnt enough plot to sustain a 2hour running time lovely photography and a good performance by danny glover do compensensate not saturday night at the multiplex material though which is a shame 3 stars though

It's a John Sayles film, what were you expecting? Not every film needs to be an action-packed blockbuster, you know.

Anyway, John Sayle's film is gentle and warm, more than anything else. It evokes it's time and place well, and it's moderately enjoyable if you can forgive the faltering first hour. Some good music and some good performances- it's a shame that the film can't escape a few problems at script level. Well worth a viewing, though.
