Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – A man is shot and quickly buried in the high desert of west Texas. The body is found and reburied in Van Horn’s town cemetery. Pete Perkins, a local ranch foreman, kidnaps a Border Patrolman and forces him to disinter the body. With his captive in tow and the body tied to a mule, Pete undertakes a dangerous and quixotic journey into Mexico.
Plot: When brash Texas border officer Mike Norton wrongfully kills and buries the friend and ranch hand of Pete Perkins, the latter is reminded of a promise he made to bury his friend, Melquiades Estrada, in his Mexican home town. He kidnaps Norton and exhumes Estrada’s corpse, and the odd caravan sets out on horseback for Mexico.

Flawless
This movie not only has some of the best acting I’ve seen in a while; but also it features a full cast of interesting characters – from the protagonists to random encounters, each one seems… to exist somewhere beyond the screen. Top notch photography, emotionally wrenching, dealing with complex issues of today’s society and depicting everything unashamedly, this movie is simply awesome. Every little detail seems to have been worked at, pondered over and hammered out until it was just perfect. Every single character is memorable. Every single shot is beautiful. I could simply find no flaws with it.

While some may find the subject of the movie distasteful, I found the manner in which it is approached to be just perfect. There are of course clichés – these are inevitable. But the attention to detail brings this movie to such heights of perfection that you cannot help but twist your face into a satisfying grin while the movie is on, and for much time afterwards.

Despite some mawkish PC twaddle– a fairly decent movie.
I pains me to criticize an artist of Tommy Lee Jones’ talent and truthfulness. This movie, which he stars in and directs, has some brilliant and truly wonderful elements. Sadly, it also exhibits some annoying Oh-So-PC twaddle, so prevalent among certain Hollywood types. For example, every Mexican in this movie is charming, sincere, honest, and kind. When Mexican strangers are encountered in the desert, and the Americans ask to buy some food, the kindly Mexicans say, ‘Well, no, we want to simply give it to you’. OK, fair enough. But aside from the clear danger of approaching half a dozen armed strangers in the wilderness, regardless of their ethnic background, Jones and Barry Pepper, as the two Americans, simply stroll into the armed camp without any thought whatsoever for caution or protocol or safety. They just assumed, and expected us to assume, that these Mexicans would be Hollywood stereotypes of civility, innocence, and simply beaming with the luster of the all too common ‘Peasant Myth’ (i.e., all peasants and poor people are happy, good, and simply waiting for The Man to allow them a chance to plant their gardens, care for their communities, and feed the world’s poor, etc.).

Undoubtedly there are many, many wonderful, innocent, and trustworthy folks in the third world. Undoubtedly, an opportunity or two might serve them well. But the over-simple and mawkish way it is presented here is naiveté to the extreme. On the one hand, when the trappings of modern Western culture are stripped away, as they are in the crappy Texas border town where the movie begins, you get banality and despair.

When the American fugitives arrive at a crappy Mexican village in the middle of the wilderness, on the other hand, there are gay twinkle lights, charming homemade and rustic music, couples and neighbors and family members chatting away with love and affection for each other. Isn’t poverty grand? And aren’t third world people just the absolute bestest ever? And aren’t Westerners too jaded, too artificial, and too banal for words? Anyway— that’s the Peasant Myth. Personally, I do not believe it for a moment. I have been to the third world (several places, at several times), and let me say— there is a REASON why those people are so desperate to leave it. Those places are horrible! Only in the guilt-ridden fantasies of Hollywood multi-millionaires does the Peasant Myth make any sense at all.

Having said all that— this movie nonetheless has charm. For example, if the movie had NOT used Mexicans versus Americans as a political sub-text, it would be a profoundly powerful movie. As it is, the posturing of the Hollwood rich kid elite spoils it a bit, and makes it merely a good movie.

Clearly, Pepper and Jones do a stupendous job of acting. Certainly Oscar worthy. Too bad the sentiments got in the way of full appreciation, but there you are.
