One Of The Best And One Of My Top Movies Of The Decade., 26 December 2009
Author: Dawalk-1 from Hialeah, Florida

I first came across the trailer of this film a few months ago on both Youtube and its official site. It's been on DVD since 2006 and I wanted to order a copy of it, but there was no mention of the payment options available and acceptable. Therefore, I sent an e-mail to the site/filmmaker Susan Brigham, who responded, inquiring about what payment(s) would be accepted. She was so gracious (and grateful) in my taking interest in this movie that she mentioned that she'd personally mail me a free copy, which she did kindly enough, after giving my name, address, city, state and zip code first of course. This is my first (and, to date, only) free movie which I received.

Principally, I've just got to say that this film is very well done and a breath of fresh air. At a time when the industry is being overrun and overdone with remakes, and mediocre to horrid direct-to-DVD releases, this indie feature restores faith that there are still great movies being made. This is a great example and thriving proof. I agree everything about Greasewood Flat is great, from the story/screenplay to the cinematography to the directing to the acting. It was stellar from start to finish and I really enjoyed it, a real treat. It's one of those that doesn't disappoint.

After a blues musician gets no where with his gigs, he returns to his home and eventually gets reacquainted and reconciles with his sister, mother and niece. Among the themes that there are in this story and to love about it is family and the importance of being there for one another. If those of y'all who may be reading my review haven't seen it nor have the DVD, order it from the official site right now, as that just seems to be the only place you'll find it available for sale (or rather giveaway). Nobody should sleep on and pass up this movie, take my word, it won't let down your anticipations. Just see for yourselves. Plus, the DVD is a special edition disc, so it has extras and bonus features including audio commentary by the filmmaker herself, outtakes, deleted scenes, a slide show of the cast and crew on set, and the process of constructing a preview.
