The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (US 2005)

A brilliant western for the 21st century focuses on illegal immigration (likely to be a constant theme until the ice caps refreeze). Tommy Lee Jones stars & directs a fantastic script by Guillermo Arriaga (you must see his Amores Perros and 21 Grams). Never looking more grizzled Jones is fabulous as cowboy who still has a moral code in the face of officialdom’s hypocrisy. Great use of locations too and Barry Pepper, as the bad guy, is also brilliant. What can say? See it. (DVD) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0419294/
