This movie is great. I don't think of it as a western. Tommy Lee Jones is great as a director. Arriaga has a kick ass script. I love the payback/consequences. Everything is interwined so beautifully. I don't like January Jones as an actress. The guy who played her husband was a jerk but he was supposed to be. Happy birthday Tommy Lee Jones. It's my birthday today too.
