Reviews

Amerikaanse speelfilm uit 1996 van regisseur John Sayles. Met chris Cooper, Elizabeth Pena, Kris Kristofferson. Als het stoffelijk overschot van een voormalige sheriff bij toeval wordt gevonden in de woestijn van Texas, moet de huidige sheriff de zaak oplossen en komt daarbij tot ongewenste uitkomsten. Boxoffice Magazine geeft vier sterren: 'Surprisingly fresh and seemingly unconcerned with heightened melodrama, Lone Star remains captivating even at well over two hours.' Het Britse magazine UNCUT geeft vijf sterren: 'Lone Star is a modern American epic, a sprawling masterpiece (...), placing an entire nation's set of values and sense of morality under the microscope while simultaneously delivering awesomely powerful and entertaining cinema.'
