Review: The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

Tommy Lee Jones was received pretty well in the indie art circuit (nominations for Independent Spirit Award, winning at Cannes) for his first entry behind the camera (one earlier job was for a TV Movie), but I don’t actually see it. Three Burials tries to be a drama without depth (of character), and adds a bit of black humor, and that succeeds to a certain level, but in the end, it’s the lack of depth that will keep nagging. The acting is up to par, but the pace is mostly too slow (especially since it has many road trip like elements in it). Pretty much a disappointment after so much hype (still, it’s not a total waste though).7.
