Mud

MudAh, yes, yet another film falling victim to my in-theatre procrastination. Thank goodness for 1-click shopping on Amazon.

While occasionally cliche, Mud is a solid film with excellent  direction, acting and several unexpected plot twists. About the acting, there are some heavy hitters like Mc Conaughey, Witherspoon and the ever-quirky Ray McKinnon however,  the real show-stealers are the two 14-year old actors from the ArkLaTex.

I got some residual “Stand By Me” atmosphere from this film however it was more morally ambiguous which was more thought-provoking and unsettling than it’s 80’s counterpart.
