I remember it very well, when this movie was released, I read a very enthousiast review and it made it sound as if it was one of the best movies of the year so I was really eager to check it out. With this in mind, I had some huge expectations before watching it and, I must admit it, I thought it was a little bit disappointing.

John Sayles' murder-mystery explores interpersonal and interracial tensions in Rio County, Texas. Sam Deeds is the local sheriff who is called to investigate a 40-year-old skeleton found in the desert....As Sam delves deeper into the town's dark secrets, he begins to learn more about his father, the legendary former sheriff Buddy Deeds, who replaced the corrupt Charlie Wade. While Sam puzzles out the long-past events surrounding the mystery corpse, he also longs to rekindle a romance with his old high-school flame. Sayles' complex characters are brought together as the tightly woven plot finally draws to its dramatic close.

" First Viewing Viewing Date: February 1st Via: Apple TV Plot: When the skeleton of his murdered predecessor is found, Sheriff Sam Deeds unearths many other long-buried secrets in his Texas border town. Rating: 7.8/10 Why Did I Watch It? This has been on my watchlist for a long, long time.

"FORMAT: 35mm CONDITION: ★★★★ NOTES: Rare print selected by Badlands Collective as the Mystery Movie. Print was mostly quite clean, aside from a couple of frame cuts and ruined reel changes.

" Have you ever been told a story by an actual storyteller? Someone who pulls you in and you can't *wait* to hear what's gonna happen next? That's what this movie was like. It's essentially a deep-south murder mystery. Wonderful acting, atmospheric...sublime. More people should see this."
