    A striking film that ends in quite a moving way. Beautifully shot and scored, especially for the first half hour, taking full advantage of the wilds of Texas. My problems with it are entirely related to the story, which felt very artificial, with characters acting in a manner that served the script rather than a realistic way. Grand metaphors and abstract passions were elevated over a more humanistic realism. 10 years 10 months ago
