Written by Guillermo Arriaga, the writer of Iñárritu's masterpieces (Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Babel), this modern day western is another proof of the Mexican writer's talent. Tommy Lee Jones directs his first theatrical feature film and he also stars in a film that initiated a resurgence in his career, which continued with the great "In the Valley of Elah" and the latest Coen's masterpiece "No Country for Old Men".
This film is a beautifully written, directed and acted mini-epic about life and death. Profound and complex, it is a gripping film about real people; don't expect one-dimensional Hollywood characters.
Deep and spiritual, this tale of friendship, justice and redemption is a must-see for everyone!
