Sling Blade 4 stars

Oscar-winning drama set in the American South about a retarded convicted felon try to make a new life for himself.

  • GenreDrama
  • CastBilly Bob Thornton, Dwight Yoakum, JT Walsh.
  • DirectorBilly Bob Thornton.
  • CountryUS
  • Duration126 mins

  • Release10/07/1998

Billy Bob Thornton plays Karl, a retarded convicted felon who learns that society rarely forgives or forgets, and is subject to prejudice and abuse from the local community. Beautifully written and directed, it's a mystery why such a quality film has taken so long to cross the Atlantic. Especially when you consider the incredible volume of rubbish that trundles off the Hollywood conveyor belt.

The Apostle 4 stars

Oscar nominated feature about a preacher spreading the message of God in America's Deep South.

  • GenreDrama
  • CastRobert Duvall, Farrah Fawcett, Miranda Richardson.
  • DirectorRobert Duvall.
  • CountryUS
  • Duration134 mins

  • Release12/06/1998 (selected cinemas)

A Pentecostal preacher's seemingly perfect life crumbles when he discovers that his wife is having an affair. In a moment of blind rage, he takes a baseball bat to the other man, and flees to Louisiana to seek redemption and devote his life to God. Robert Duvall's Oscar nominated drama is an effortless exercise in top class film-making. Written, produced, directed by and starring Duvall (is there no end to this man's talents?) it's an emotionally devastating ensemble piece featuring some incredible supporting performances and subtle direction. Harrowing, but incredibly rewarding.
