One of several of writer-director John Sayles's masterpieces -alongside such unforgettable films as "City of Hope," "Matewan" and "The Secret of Roan Inish" - "Lone Star" is an absorbing neo-Western mystery told in a haunting magical realist tone.

Lone Star, one of Sayles best and most popular films, explores the historical strain between the Mexican and American communities in Texas. Though a bit didactic (too many sermons), it's well acted and visually more satisfying than his other films

It is the structure of the film, including the smooth-subtle pans, turning present to past and back to present, that really awe. (published 7-19-96)

Lone Star is intrinsically an aggregate of John Sayles' prior films, politically and racially.

A intriguing use of non-linear narration . . . a palette of fascinating characters, and the gothic Americana setting of a small Texas town with many skeletons in its closet.
