Goofs

Almost all of the costumes are obviously brand-new, with no attempt to age them. This is particularly noticeable in the first scene, with the close-up shot of the chaps, which had supposedly had at least two years' use. See more »

Fabulous acting and directing by Tommy Lee Jones
1 June 2003 | by bassislandSee all my reviews

Tommy Lee Jones directs himself and a sensational cast in this western. I couldn't believe how wonderful it was, and went to imdb to see who directed it. The look and feel of this movie are perfect, and every moment rings true. It also looks great. Jones' eye is superb, and the shots are brilliant without calling attention to themselves. Terrific.
