Simply brilliantBy Ben Uttley from London, England , 13 Apr 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This slow paced movie is instantly engaging. The texan/ mexican locations are beautifully captured and the direction allows the actors to breathe. The result is a visually beautiful, engaging drama that is often witty and keeps you fully intrigued throughout its duration. A masterclass in all things film.

Nothing short of brilliantBy LadyMagoo (3 reviews) , 26 Mar 2013I had never heard of this film but the reviews encouraged me to give it a try so glad I did. I was taken out of my living room on a sometimes emotional journey and felt so much better for it.
Great performances, great story and beautiful filming.By a customer , 01 Nov 2012I was transfixed from the very beginning. Great performances, great story and beautiful filming. I don't know why I hadn't heard of this film before. So glad I decided to give it a try.
Enthralling movieBy Bangle (1 review) , 25 Oct 2012Shades of the Coehen Brother's - Tommy Lee Jones' always good value. The development of the relationship between the characters played by Lee Jones and Pepper are well drawn and performed.
Superb film not to be missedBy a customer , 20 Sep 2012Wow what a superb film. The acting, scenery and storyline were great. Will definatley watch again. Don't miss this one. Best watched alone so you can really get into it without distraction. Loved it.
The Man From Down UnderBy Rigamortis (95 reviews) from South London , 10 May 2012When I dig up a corpse, it stays dug up. Seems they do things different on the border. Man can't get settled into his worm-filled hole before some gringo starts hauling out his carcass for an autopsy. I swear, in these parts, a dead man does more travelling after his demise than when he's live and kicking. Then some damn fool friend wants to know how he died and who did it. It looks like someone's fixing to make a journey that takes them back to where they started from. Best make it an interesting journey. I'd be mighty interested in knowing how that goes. Oh, I already do. Your turn to find out.
