Underrated Movie #262 ~ Mud

Mud

Buy from Amazon.com

Two Mississippi teens, Ellis and Neckbone, meet a mysterious drifter named Mud hiding on a deserted river island and get caught up in his tangled web of tall tales about bounty hunters, crimes of passion, lost love and a perfect woman named Juniper. (Netflix) My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars. A tough call, but in the end I couldn’t not give “Mud” five stars. The only “problem” is the slow pace, but if you like movies at all, settle-in and you won’t be disappointed. Internet Movie Database

Underrated Movie #259 ~ To Live and Die in L.A.

To Live and Die in L.A.

Buy from Amazon.com

After ace counterfeiter Rick Masters (Willem Dafoe) murders the partner of Secret Service agent Richard Chance (William Petersen), the gumshoe will stop at nothing to even the score. Big problem, though: Masters is, well, a master at the game and outfoxes Chance at every turn. Can Chance outwit him? William Friedkin directs this suspenseful, violent thriller with the City of Angels (a misnomer in this case) as the alluring backdrop. (Netflix) My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars. Internet Movie Database
