Things I'm thankful for

I'm thankful for films like this one:It's got a meandering opening but once the story kicks in, wow. It's really good. I highly recommend it.

And I'm sure some smart ass who's seen it is going to say this film is representative of the whole south, but this story could have taken place in any rural area in Michigan, Iowa, California, New Mexico, Maine, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Montana, Idaho, anywhere. And the sad thing is, while our economy deteriorates and our social safety net is shredded, more and more of you are going to be sharing your neighborhoods with the kind of low life criminal types that populate this film.

I've not heard of this film. Will have to look into it.

On your recommendation, I'll check it out... and some pretty impressive reviews on the cover.

BEST movie I've seen this year, and I do live in the South. There are indeed these types of people everywhere though, but particularly in the rural impoverished areas of the USA. Meth is at epidemic porportions in such regions, and undermining the fabric of what was once small, safe rural communities.

I saw it last night, based on your review and LOVED it. And I'm a tough cookie. SV liked it too. Thx!
