Challenges the Viewer
10 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is no accounting for taste and yes, a movie has to entertain first or not much is happening for the viewer, but one has to wonder about the general sensitivity of some of these negative reviews after watching the quality of acting and the story unfolding in Bright Angel. You generally don't find the quality of cast throughout found here (although it's surprising how many mediocre films Sam Shepard has managed to make). I found the movie believable and based on the reality of the hardscrabble life surrounding the oil fields of Wyoming and Billings, Montana where it was filmed. It's an evocative piece of film and very well directed.
