This film of southwestern USA uses a crime story to tell a late 20th century story of the relationships between Whites, Native Americans, African-Americans and Mexican-Americans. Screenwriter and director John Sayles was nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe for best screenwriter. This will not be a favorite film for today’s Donald Trump fans, but the problems of thirty and forty years ago are still with us today.

Engaging, complex, entertaining.

A good movie. A surprisingly accurate portrayal of Texans and Texas law enforcement and their long history of violent bigotry and corruption. And the confused bigotry among the hispanics and blacks trying to exist in an outnumbered Texas white minority with all the power.

This masterwork is one of John Sayles' best--a complex web about an unsolved murder in a Texas border town; endemic corruption; relationships between the town's population of whites, Mexicans and blacks; three dissimilar sheriffs and frowned upon romances. It all is spun out like a compelling novel, with great intelligence and strong cinematic skills. This is a great movie!
