CGiii Comment

Small town America is terrifying, corrupt and homophobic.

This is fairly reminiscent of Sling Blade - the same tempo and temperament.

Thornton redoes his Monster's Ball role.

The pace is slow but manages to build an atmosphere of menace. doesn't have enough force to keep it compelling - your mind will start to wander.

Distinctly average.


The(ir) Blurb...

A sheriff (Thornton) begins an investigation into the death of a local transsexual after hearing that high ranking politicians may have been involved. Although he is homophobic, his investigation causes him to be rejected by others, forcing him to seek help from the people he once despised.
