Quotes

[first lines]
Bud Carter: [voice over] South Louisiana in the 1980s was a different kind of time and place. Some called it lawless. But it wasn't. Others said we just got a certain way of doing things down here. But it ain't that either. Instead, I call it what it was. Hell with the lid off.

A great movie Period...
20 March 2014 | by markholland8See all my reviews

What ever you say about this movie and its imperfections it is maid to entertain and it does that completely. The imperfections I have heard reviewers go on about are completely out weighed by a great gritty story line and Willem Defoe plays a big part in carrying this film but Matt Dillon WOW every once in a while actors that have had a dry spell and then come back with a masterpiece and boy does Dillon, i would never have imagined him in this this type of role but he makes the movie. The film is original and dark and has great mustache's to boot. If its not your kind of thing then its just worth watching for the individual performances. Loved it Loved it Loved it. The End
