  2. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    Arriaga, stupendomi ancora una volta, assembla un puzzle narrativo incurante del concetto di "cronologia", formato da tasselli espositivi di varie forme e misure, percorrendo la storia del povero Melquiades, vittima impotente degli eventi. La regia di Lee Jones ben si presta al gioco narrativo e mostra gli eventi in modo efficace e puntuale. Intanto guardatelo, se poi trovate Jimenez fate un fischio.

    "melquiades estrada, you stupid gringo. now dig him up."

  6. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    There's beauty here, and thoughtfulness. A fine blend of modern world and ageless americana with dashes of pitch-black humour. Some lull here and there, but it balances out nicely in the end. Tommy Lee Jones seems to know his craft behind the camera, too.

  7. kokeshi's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    Adoro la penna di Guillermo Arriaga

  8. Alice Jansson's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    Interesting "macho-film" which manages to bring more feelings than expected. The character portraits are not only based on the usual stereotypes. Some amusing dark humour as well.

  9. tertzak's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    ...until he recognizes that he is an incomprehensible monster

  10. Mitchell Corner's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    Tommy Lee Jones crafted a great genre picture. Incorporating the sensibilities of modern concerns such as border control and the war in the Middle East the film easily transcends all current media stories and becomes really just a great classic Western.

  11. Christopher Taylor's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    A modern meditation that is as much a western as any other. Tommy Lee Jones inhabits the film both in front and behind the camera and the movie is beautifully simple yet complex. A fine piece of minimalist Americana.

  12. Sancar Seckiner's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

  13. the_gallus's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

  14. Th MZA's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    This looks/feels like a TV movie, but TLJ as the loyal and lonely cowboy who done lost his fool mind in a hella charming and engaging way redeems it. Kind of a Magic Mexican movie, but w/ too much respect for its characters' weaknesses to allow easy lessons learned. Every non-Mexican in this movie is at least somewhat physically unattractive -- that's refreshing -- and the idiocy reaches Breaking Bad levels.

  15. J.B.'s rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    Have to admit I'm glad to find this film on Mubi. Beautiful modern Western (as Lopezz says), with a poignant, redemptive story.

  17. Lopezz's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    While I find No Country for Old Men a better film, this is a pretty good, gritty modern Western, with a Peckinpah touch. Lee Jones is a great actor and a decent director.

  18. robespiere's rating of the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    A wonderful road movie about repentance.
