Review of Sling Blade (1996)

This movie is absolutely riveting and wonderful. I didn't expect Billy Bob's performance to be THIS good, and that doesn't even start to cover it. From the first sequence I was completely hooked, even if the movie is developing quite slowly.

All the characters have this damaged quality to them and they just make you think it's so real, just like real life. The connection between the characters, sometimes the disconnect even, makes for great performances throughout the whole movie. The cinematography is superb also, and the directing style is flawless.

One of the best films and performances in modern cinematography. At timers it even reminded me of Daniel Day Lewis' performance in My Left Foot, but the characters are just different. They are rugged and raw and desperate, which only adds to this great movie's qualities. Just go and watch it already!

Good review. This is one of my parents' favorite movies. Billy Bob Thornton portrays a very unsentimental and unique character. The one part of your review I don't understand is when you say 'at times it even reminded me of Daniel Day-Lewis' performance in "My Left Foot..." Do you mean Billy Bob Thornton's performance reminded you of Daniel Day-Lewis? Anyway, nice, concise review.

Yes, Billy Bob's performance reminded me of DD Lewis. Just because they were both so intense and uniquely represented.
