Storyline

Brother Edgar is a generous entrepreneur of low quality socks who hides behind a self-bestowed cassock to avoid the low level corruption of local sheriffs. He has adopted Morales Pittman, who has bigger, more illegitimate dreams than Edgar. The two travel about Arkansas, selling their socks and bumping into a variety of simple souls, including the eponymous mythic killer, who has engaged himself to Apple Lisa Weed and disavowed his life as a murderer. Morales Pittman joins forces with Miss Apple Lisa's dim-witted brother, Reggie, to extort money from the local bumpkins, to the annoyance of the reigning provider of "protection," Mr. Pines. Things come to a head as Edgar finds himself falling for the blind Eva Nell, who manages the best teahouse in Arkansas and Morales becomes more jealous of the place the Kid has taken in Edgar's heart.

a comedy
5 September 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

basic problem of film remains the expectations, to high, of public. because it is real strange to use a splendid cast for a kind of joke without beginning or end, story or credible characters. but that is it !a comedy about nothing. isles of bizarre scenes, few beautiful images, Bob Hoskins in search of his character credibility and Antonio Banderas in a parody of Hispanic stereotype. but the worse thing is the punishment for poor Wes Bentley who must become a version of fake James Dean, charming boy with dark past , victim of a form of romantic teenager stupidity. an easy comedy about nothing. that is all. only hope - the fun for the film team.because for public remains not seductive crumbs.
