The story is about a fugitive looking to reunite with the love of his life happens across two teenage boys and the three form a pact to help him evade his pursuers and complete his quest. The two kid actors in the movie did a good Job in they roles and this was the year for Matthew McConaughey because he was brilliant in this movie.

Could be the Winter's Bone of 2013. Mud features some interesting characters and excellent performances.

This Mud is fresh and must be felt

Do not go wrong by the name. Jeff Nichols knows such contexts, as he has done it before. (Take Shelter). Family dramas and really a good verse of emotional core, is his area, and here he did no mistake. He puts McCaunaghey (Dominant performance) as Mud, as a fugitive alone in an island fighting for his lost love Juniper (Witherspoon, a slightly indifferent performance) to meet up and escape from there. Nichols brings us this intense and neatly made drama with feasible story telling and game changing performances. Surprise factor: The boys in the film (Sheridan and Shepard) were more than expected. They gave everything they could. In fact, the main asset to this film, is not the hard stick and mixed character of Mud, but the daring and valorous boys. Nichols blends his vision of superb sto...

Matthew McConaughey-hey-hey-hey

Mud is a throwback to forgotten elements in film. Love, vengeance, coming of age, betrayal and a sense of danger.
It has elements of many of my favorite movies, paying respects to Stand By Me especially. It's one of the more heart-warming films of the year.

Going into Mud, I didn't know what to expect. And I guess Matthew McConaughey is looking to make a comeback, and although I noticed more and more flaws in the characters by the end, I thoroughly enjoyed Mud.

The direction by Jeff Nichols is marvelous. This guy knows what things to emphasize to create a certain mood. I don't think there's a single frame out of place in this film, and I simply adore the shots of nature and how he so splendidly captured youth in a nutshell.
The acting in this movie is so good, it's scary. It is be...

Mud review

"This river brings a lot of trash down...you gotta know what’s worth keeping and what’s worth letting go." Definitely one of the best quality films of the year for its genre. It starts with two friends, Ellis and Neckbone, roaming around an island and meets a fugitive named Mud. Mud tells Ellis about Juniper and how he would do anything for her. The father who lost a child to Mud tries to avenge his death by sending bounty hunters and his other son. Basically, the picture focuses on the father’s actions of their detractors or their sons coupled with the trivialities of love and maturation as a kid.
Direction and cinematography were spotless. Screenplay as always provocative with lines: “"I don't traffic in the truth too often, but I did love her," “"If you're not careful it'll up a...

The trailer was much more intense than I expected. With McConaughey and Michael Shannon on board, this should be one to watch. I still have Take Shelter on my list of movies I need to watch.

I love movies in which kids have an adventure or solve a problem...The Goonies, Super 8, etc. This film's trailer seams like that kind of movie. Early critic reviews are positive.

The trailer is interesting. I'm looking forward to this due mostly to Jeff Nichols, who made what was in my opinion a masterpiece, Take Shelter. It also has Matthew McConaughey, who has been pretty awesome in roles he's been taking lately. Comes out this April. I can't wait.
