A great understated Southern drama from a master of the genre. McKinnon lets the setting and characters inform the story, instead of the other way round. And what a deep well of empathy and respect he has for these lost souls.
Also, Precious (as played by Clifford) jumped straight to # 2 on my list of favorite dog performances of all time.
Jim Jarmusch's too-cool-for-school vampire hangout movie makes True Blood look like the Muppet Babies.
Actually, Muppet Babies makes True Blood look like Sesame Street.
No, Sesame Street makes True Blood look like, uh, VeggieTales.
I guess the point I'm trying to make is that True Blood isn't very good, or is for very young kids.
True Blood! New season starts Sunday, June 22nd! Only on HBO!
