beautiful, lyrical, visually haunting
not without faults - the cuts that director billy bob thornton was rumored to have been required to make were obvious, especially if one read the novel - but a visually stunning masterpiece nevertheless. the score was the perfect backdrop and, along with the setting, as much a character in the film as john grady, blevins, lacey and the rest. and i don't know which damon and cruz the rest of the imdb users were watching, but i thought their chemistry set the screen alight - with one look, it was obvious that their passions ran deep. lucas black was a wonder, completely inhabiting his character - at once endearingly, refreshingly funny, honest and heartbreaking. a shame about the cuts thornton had to make as certain storylines should have been given the chance to further develop and unfold. the film was luxuriously slow-paced, and though i was left at the end wanting more, i'm not convinced that that was a bad thing.
