Bane leading the charge, the movie had a Public Enemies vibe to it. You feel totally immersed in this time and the southern dialect, a tough one to not go overboard on, was pulled off very well by all parties in the film.
However, the most disturbing sight in the whole movie is Guy Pearce's greasy middle parting. His Charlie Rakes is a prancing psychopath; perhaps the most disturbing since the child-catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
... the best Michael Cimino film not directed by Cimino ... a richly appointed family saga that doles out heartland mythology, old-time religion, star-crossed romance and thick, gooey swaths of the red stuff.
