Watched it today, another winner from Deakins of course. Lighting was much more source motivated in this one in comparison to his other two features which came out last year, and it was beautiful as ever.

This Haggis film has so much more to say than "Crash" ever did, and in far less words. TL Jones was masterful, Theron was good (except for perhaps in the final confrontation with the MP investigator) and Brollin's pair of scenes were great.

It was kind of weird watching it after having seen "No Country for Old Men" and "American Gangster". Brolin had his same moustache from American Gangster, so that's the only link in that case. And then of course there's the Deakins, Brolin & Jones connection with "No Country". Even Barry Corbin managed to sneak a cameo into the film as someone who was in stark contrast to his character in "No Country".
