  • Conclusion: Jeff Nichols' 2011 film 'Take Shelter' may have been snubbed by the Academy, but there's no way that they can dismiss his new film 'Mud.' In every aspect of filmmaking – writing, directing, acting, screenplay, music, cinematography, and so on – it's superb, nearly flawless.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
6 June 2013
  • Excerpt: "Mud" is a hold-your-breath atmospheric thriller set down South in the US. As expected, the ol' boys are hardened characters seeking either redemption or revenge but this intense movie really belongs to the two wide-eyed young boys and their adventures in a grim adult world.
