Quotes

Ben Briggs: Alright, well you can think about it or you can not think about it, but that's the situation, that's what's going on. 15 years ago is the same as today. So you can put another gun to my head and tell me to get the fuck off the Briggs Ranch like you did 15 years ago or you can be a real man and accept what's going on.
Scott Briggs: [Glares at Ben from atop his horse]
Ben Briggs: Just think about it.

It's Not Your Father's Texas
5 July 2015 | by SuraditSee all my reviews

The first part of the film was a little erratic, jumping abruptly from one situation to another. Not sure if that was intentional or if editing created continuity issues.

Also in the beginning some of the minor actors seemed to be quite literally reading their lines from a teleprompter that wasn't keeping up.

If you stuck with it, things did improve. Duvall both starred in the film and wrote it. He was, as always, excellent and I'm impressed that he (apparently?) came up with the story idea. Possibly he personally had some past demons he wished to put to rest.

It deals with a Texas rancher coming to terms with changing times, a need to address past wrongs and an attempt to reconstitute a family that his attitudes and behavior had torn apart. His efforts are not entirely successful in many ways and yet may have been the catalyst for some painful healing nonetheless.

James Franco was quite good. His acting is so much better when Seth Rogan is not involved. Maybe a hint of James Dean dealing with father-son alienation but with more understated drama. Josh Hartnett was also excellent.

It is not really a feel-good sort of movie, but there is a comforting sense that some things are changing for the better no matter how painful the process.
