Critic Reviews for Tex
Writers Charlie Haas and Tim Hunter (latter making his directing debut) seem intent on incorporating every conceivable adolescent and adult trauma into their script.
There is a shock of recognition almost from the beginning of Tex, because we're listening to the sound of American voices in an authentically American world.
This is a film that accomplishes everything that it attempts, and does so expertly. On its own terms, it is a success through and through.
Dillon, though occasionally annoying, turns in a decent performance, as do Jim Metzler as his brother and Meg Tilly as his girlfriend.
A stirring, memorable early performance by Dillon
Audience Reviews for Tex
you git chur horse back, boy... why she's da one done convinced you to tell yer brother you love him.
Matt Dillon has never been more subtly expressive and transparent, and maybe only funnier in Singles; Jim Meltzer is actually funny here as a straight man; there is some great camerawork and lighting. S.E. Hinton seems to be dealing with more Judy-Blume type issues here, so the movie works like a neorealist afterschool special.
The lousiest of S.E. Hinton's books to be brought to screen. Do yourself a favor and rent either the Outsiders or Rumble Fish they are so much better
