Lone Star (1996)
"John Sayles invites you to return to the scene of the crime."When the skeleton of his murdered predecessor is found, Sheriff Sam Deeds unearths many other long-buried secrets in his Texas border town.
A good watch for those who missed it in 1996.
In "Lone Star", a skull is found in an isolated part of a Texas border
county which begins an investigation by the local Sheriff who must unlock a
closet full of skeletons to solve the mystery. Critically acclaimed and a
high scoring flick on this website, "Lone Star" is a film to be reckoned
with. It features solid performances without the usual blockbuster star
power, an engaging story, a real feel, and masterful editing which allows
for a seamless presentation of the numerous flashbacks required to tell the
story. You'll find little emoting or little reason to emote in this
matter-of-fact contemporary film which ends with a kicker. Worth a look for
just about anyone mature enough for the subject matter.
