  • The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada 2005

    ★★★★ Added

    Really good Texas drama directed by and starring Tommy Lee Jones. It has a really strong tonal quality, excellent use of camera and locations across barren, lonely Texas. The film has a great set of human characters - from sheriffs, border patrol men, waitresses, cowboys. All trying to find their way, lost in America. Also a mention for the fantastic use of music, not just Marco Beltrami's score but the vibrant use of country music - Dwight Yoakam (also a cast member), Merle Haggard, Hank Williams Jr and others. My type of film, really liked it, Tommy Lee Jones is one of my favourites.

Jodorowsky had put together an amazing team to try and pull it off - music by Pink Floyd, art design by Mobieus, Chris Foss and HR Giger, special effects by Dan O'Bannon, as well as a cast including Salvador Dali, Orson Welles and David Carradine. This is a film about filmmaking, about Jodorowsky's absolute commitment to his vision - he's a an eccentric and inspiring…
