"In The Electric Mist" by Yojimbo

A small town detective hunts a serial murderer while contending not only with his own alcoholism but that of a visiting movie star. I can't say I'd ever heard of this film but decided to give it a go based on the presence of Jones and Goodman and I must say that they didn't disappoint. Tommy Lee proves he can still play the tough guy at his ripe old age and all of the scenes when he's being grampa bad ass are easily the best. It's one of those crime thrillers that tries a little too hard to show the "local colour" and some of the peripheral characters and sub-plots are not entirely convincing but the central concept of swamp-noir really worked for me. The minor affectation of his conversations with a dead confederate general are something you'll either accept or not but as a whole I enjoy...

There is a director's cut, which appeared in Cannes and in the theatrical release in Europe. However, in America, it was released straight to DVD (why?? It is one of the best films I've seen in a long time!!). However, the shortened American version is really, really great. The end must have been the part that was truncated, because everything seemed to wrap up within the last 3 minutes, literally. But other than that, it was a ...
