Fresh and nicely complex: a good example of a not-Hollywood movie.
13 May 2006 | by vitoqueSee all my reviews

Texas is a vivid movie and I personally really liked it: acting is fresh rhythm is high, and the direction is interesting.

The movie is about the life in suburb little town of the rich, "great" but foggy north.

A bunch of guys try to escape the day-by-day boredom but each in a different way: there is who engage himself trying to accomplish the record of longest burp, who try to revenge his life through his work, who through her love life. Somebody escape to her marriage and somebody just escape by moving out.

The greatness of this movie lies in the introspection of each single character, even the secondary ones, by showing their passions, their tics, their fears, how they like or dislike each other. What they envy and what they hate.

Texas is not an easy movie though, the plot is complex and the rhythm is high, so if you miss some details you may miss some hidden cool sides of the movie, or end up thinking that nothing is happened.

If you're a Hollywood lover you'll probably dislike Texas, but if you think a movie is something more than flying bullets and noisy explosion, give this movie a shot.
