I watched this one in BD last night. There's a thread on that forum, but I thought I'd post here my thoughts. A compelling Louisiana detective story starring Tommy Lee Jones and John Goodman about murdurs past and present filtered under the glass of Bayou backdrops and Cajun drawls. The story while straight forward rarely kept a straight line. Elements of the supernatural crept in and made it interesting. I assume the DVD transfer is great because BD was stellar. There were some plotting flaws, but it was so easy to overlook because TLJ is a mesmerizing actor. This guy is a national treasure. The depth of character he can evoke while keeping his voice in monotone without a change of expression on his world weary face is amazing. There are a host of characters that are intertwined in this mystery. They all play their part and it gets wrapped up neatly in the end, but excellent performances all around. There's a slight twist which adds to the enjoyment. It's a quality rental, maybe a buy for some.
