★★☆☆ – (2009) – A sculpture artist with father issues builds a man from parts of other men. Attempts deep, psychological angles, but the drama most always comes across as sheer corn. The ideas have been used before, from Color Me Blood Red to May, but absurdities to this low a degree are hard to come by.

Sling Blade

Sling Blade

★★★☆ – (2000) – A mentally challenged man with a violent past is freed into a world that reminds him of his crimes. Deliberately slow throughout, but always progresses through unique characters and a tense story. Well-structured and wonderfully acted.

★★★☆ – (2000) – A father and son solve a serial killer case thirty-years apart thanks to a transistor radio and space waves. Begins as an involving tale of saving a life, then gradually develops into one of saving many lives. A tad on the sappy side, but has plenty of surprising developments.
