  • Excerpt: Tommy Lee Jones turns a new leaf with The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada , his feature directorial debut about the power of friendship and the lengths people will go to honor it. Along with the critically hailed Brokeback Mountain , this film offers another twist on the Western genre, breaking conventions and proving there is vast unexplored territory within the traditional gun-slinging settings of the frontier.

The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada

AV Club

  • Excerpt: Few things are held more sacred than how a corpse gets treated, because it speaks to how much a life was acknowledged and valued by those in possession of the body. The first two burials of Melquiades Estrada, an illegal Mexican immigrant shot down in a Texas border town, are born of the indifference that greets the fate of many whose status makes them invisible. The third ends a long journey toward redemption, though it follows a few more indignities along the way.
