Ain’t Them Bodies Saints


Well. Here’s one that fell under my radar (came out in 2013) and I am fully, madly, deeply in love with now. A Western set in 1970s Texas about a Bonnie and Clyde-type couple trying to get by…trying to get back together. You can read the film’s description (on the Internet) if you need more than that, but really, while not a perfect film, the direction is gorgeous (reminds me of Andrew Dominik a bit), the score is unwaveringly beautiful (and fitting), and the tone is so lyrical, so magical, yet at the same time so raw and real…well, I haven’t seen anything like it in a long while.

My score: 4 out of 5 sad, old letters


Bonus: Soundtrack via YouTube
