  3. Buddy Love's rating of the film Some Folks Call it a Sling Blade

    Excellent! Molly Ringwald really nailed her part it's too bad she's kinda disappeared.. I reckon Karl will be meeting Dwight Yoakam soon.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film Some Folks Call it a Sling Blade

    Incredible short that would later be expanded into the academy award winning "Sling Blade' directed by its writer Billy Bob Thornton. This shorter version is a slice of american gothic horror and well suited to its black and white aesthitic. Performance wise JT Walsh is just as creepy in this early version and Thornton obviously was still developing the character. Hickenlooper's first taste of narrative success.
