A beautiful, dumb cowboy movie about two beautiful, dumb cowboys.

June 26, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Whether it was the writing or the directing, it just seemed to be a little aimless to me.

October 14, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Edwards proves that he was a more diverse filmmaker than perhaps he was given credit for.

Never kicks in as anything more than a fashionable mood piece.
