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.

Solid - thats it Solid, film not to be missed
3 April 2014 | by shadow-worldshadowSee all my reviews

OK so lots of people have said lots of things, but the bottom line is this is a film.... Films have a long history of telling stories, making big splashes and the rest, this is not one of them. This is a slow burner a solid film that builds and makes you believe, sure miss it if you like doesn't worry me one bit. is it going to be what you expected - no is it going to be a block buster - no. Is it a film - Yesssssssssssssssss. Watch it, this is what films should be,FUPK Hollywood, FUPK block busters, acting is what its about, this film has it in spades, so much people don't even see it. Watch it savior it remember it in future years it will be a film your reflect on for a while.
