I went to see the movie, "Nursie" and was so surprised by the acting. I wondered who the Nurse was because I wasn't paying attention at first to the names and then when I saw the credits, it was the same woman who was in "North Dallas 40" and "Long Riders" a long time ago. I've always liked C. Thomas Howell but this time he seemed so grown up and deep. It was really scary. Not like other movies scary with tons of blood and constant slicing of peoples heads off but slower Southern like scary. The women in the nursing home, Twilight Gardens, were were really weird and feeble and sickly and Nursie was pretty twisted. Her niece, Mary Claire was so pretty. I wanted her to get what she wanted. I don't want to say what it is because I don't want to give anything away. I love movies shot in the South because they're so cloudy and steamy and dreamy and scary and complicated. Like the doctor tied to the bed in the attic that Nursie's brother feeds supper to.
I liked the colors. They were bold and whoever directed it must have known what he was doing for a long time because each scene led to the next. There wasn't any fat in the movie. And the song at the end was really beautiful. Spooky but in a way elegant. I'm waiting for "Nursie's Back".
