THIS COMMENT DOES CONTAIN MILD SPOILERS!!!!

"Painted Hero" is a really good movie. Dwight Yoakam is Virgil Kidder. He's a rodeo clown. A long time ago he left his family, but now he's come back. Then he meets Teresa (Kiersten Warren) who is a little crazy. She thinks she's a vampire. During one night, Teresa dies under suspicious circumstances. Virgil is blamed for her murder, and now he has to clear his name.

This is a great movie because the acting is first-rate. Dwight Yoakam puts in a convincing performance. The writing is offbeat and different. I can't believe this movie went DTV. It shouldn't have met that fate.

In the end: If you want an unusual drama, "Painted Hero" is a good choice.
