This movie gripped me. It was quiet and intense. It was also a good murder mystery and made its anti-war statements in a subtle way. I took T-rex with me and he seemed to understand it and said he really liked it. Saradon was excellent as usual, but it was really Billy Bob Thornton's show and he was great. I, of course, was all torn up imagining the dead kid as a son or grandson. The Tuesday vigil is going to be a big one, with other groups joining us. I wish it didn't all feel so futile.
