Well, I saw the latest Clint Eastwood flick last night.
WHAT WORKED: -The story. A few subplots delve in at the beginning that make you wonder where they're going with them...and then they all come together at the end. Nothing is useless filler in this flick. -The acting. Sean Pean? Awesome. Tim Robbins? Awesome. Kevin Bacon? Awesome. Everyone was perfectly cast and spot-on. -The music. Not too heavy, but moving.
WHAT DIDN'T WORK: -The length. At 140 minutes, it's long. And a lot of the beginning and middle is slow. I mean, we see Tim Robbins looking at things for about five minutes. At the end, you see that it was all going somewhere...but you can't help but say "Yeah, but why didn't they go faster?"
Overall, I highly recommend it for anyone who likes a good mystery...or just who plain likes good movies.

I saw this movie at the Austin Film Festival on Saturday night. It was good, but there's this one scene near the end with Laura Linney's character who plays Sean Penn's wife. It came completely out of nowhere and looked totally out of place. That scene should've been cut to shave off the film's really long length.
