A violent, comedic, crime drama character study, 16 October 2010
Author: napierslogs from Ontario, Canada

Edward Norton stars as Bill Kincaid a sensible ivy league philosophy professor who makes a trip home to Oklahoma, and Edward Norton stars as Brady Kincaid, twin brother, a rash hillbilly drug dealer who gets himself mixed up in bad drug deals and murders. "Leaves of Grass" is a dark comedy, crime drama and ultimately character study.

It starts out with a fair amount of comedy. Both brothers are pretty funny in their own way. There are a number of pot jokes which even seem original. The film slows down as it introduces us to all the different characters. Too slow, in my opinion, as we are all anxious to see what crimes the brothers get themselves into. And then those crimes play out with a lot of violence.

The interesting thing about this film as that it really is just a character study at its heart. Norton and writer Tim Blake Nelson do a great job with Bill as he examines who he is and what he really wants out of life. I recommend "Leaves of Grass" to people who like the idea of a philosophical character study played out as a violent, comedic, crime drama.
