Goofs

Quotes

Mike Milligan: And isn't that a minor miracle? The state of the world today and the level of conflict and misunderstanding, that two men could stand on a lonely road in winter and talk calmly and rationally... while all around them, people are losing their mind.

The Gang's All Here!
20 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the stroke, the Geahardts are looking for someone to lead them. Mom is the one who decides to be it, but the eldest son thinks otherwise. They have been visited by the Kansas City mob who have made an offer, an offer which means taking the money or becoming targets. Of course, one of the boys is in a freezer after committing multiple murders in Luverne where the the butcher's assistant and his wife are trying to cover things up. Representing Kansas City is a cold young black man and his two partners who look like a couple Amish guys (they are practically twins). There is one of those scenes where the sheriff (Ted Danson) stops these guys and as he tries to do his job. The talk leads to an incredible tension among them where every movement is filled with potential violence. That is matched by Ed's late night trip to the butcher shop and the arrival of Lou, who sees the lights on and Ed's pickup. He buys some bacon to take home in another one of those scenes where discovery is a possibility. Watch for the search for the quarter. Masterful directing, to say the least.
