The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

This is pretty much the Tommy Lee Jones one-man show. Directs, stars, produces and provides some of the scenery from his own ranch. Also his own cows. Mostly brilliant although I think the penitent was drawn with too broad a brush. No one can play weary and sad like Tommy Lee Jones. I enjoyed the ending very much with its uninterpretable aspect.
The music was good, too. Here's a featurette about the music from composer Marco Beltrami.
