A journey well worth taking,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lone Star [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
John Sayles has created a film that keeps one riveted to the screen from start to finish, with a storyline that is intriguing in its complexity of clashing cultures and underhand dealings in a Texas Border Town.
While it is a modern western whodunnit, the film is about people and their frailties
and these are deftly handled in a film of great depth, which makes you want to immediately see it again to understand more the nuances that come across.
The cast is superb with Chris Cooper( A very underated actor) giving a performance of a lifetime( See him also in the Civil War Film "Pharoah's Army").The cinemaphotography is wonderful, the musical score perfect for the storyline and the scenery to match.
I gave this film 4 stars and not 5 only due to the poor sound quality in places. This may be due to the DVD version i have purchased, but i do not think so as i think that some poor sound editing took place.(I found it difficult at times to understand what was being said). Yes, i am used to Southern Accents.
This film will most definately stay in my library and the film is a journey well worth taking.
