The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
 
Carolyn says: "Though it was only 2 hours long it seemed quite a bit longer. I think it suffers from too many plot twists that don't really add up to anything in the end. Also despite the fact that it is called the "three" burials, we only caught two. 2.5 cats"
 
Tom says: "THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA is the best western since UNFORGIVEN (btw I love westerns)).
 
Barbara says: "Even though I am not a big fan of westerns, I did like this film. We ended up seeing it while on vacation and it provoked conversation regarding immigration, friendship, trust, etc. Barry Pepper really conveyed the confusion, fear and insane machismo that comes with being a Border Patrol Officer. 4 Cats"
