4.0 out of 5 stars How Much Can You Take?, 19 Feb 2009
By 
Martin A Hogan "Marty From SF" (San Francisco Bay Area) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
If you have to see a realistic and horrifically depressing film with great performances - this is it. This tragedy set in a prison community in the racist south is chock full of surprises and shockers. Thornton's three generational family is a conflictual mess with varying degrees of vicious racism and mental illness. Halle Barry's family fares no better with tremendous loss of everything and everyone in her life. When the two finally meet, there is a sort of acceptance and redemption on both parts, but its terribly painful to watch. Heath Ledger plays Thornton's more sensitive son in an underplayed role. Halle Barry bares her soul and her body with a worthiness Oscar rewarded, only to see her disappear into the "X-Men" again! Barry and Thornton have a torrid sex scene that is barely cut only to have him wake up in the morning with his underwear on - only in America!

Now in this blu-ray edition, the colors, crispness and sound is impeccable. The sound is in DTS 5.1 and extras include, Audio Commentary with Director and Writers, four deleted scenes, the featurettes of `On the set', `Behind the scenes with the producer', cast and crew interviews, music for the film and the theatrical trailer.
