Few Options... what an unexpected masterpiece. Earlier reviews are impressively close to my opinion. All the elements of the film amazed me. I would hate to compare it to any movie that I have loved over the past several decades. So I will just mention movies that connected with me in similar ways. How about crime classics with Humphrey Bogart; the films of John Sayles and Jim Jarmusch. The "Deadwood" series on HBO worked its way with me in a similar manner. "In the Heat of the Night" has affected me every year since the 1960's. "Few Options" will be burning in my brain for the rest of my life. Our inhuman prison system and our unfinished justice system could not be better displayed. Thanks to everyone who worked on this movie.
exploitative offerings in the name of movies, and shows us it can be done. Compromise is not the name of the game; hard work and talent is. Do you need a truckload of dough to start with? No, not when you're armed with the abilities of actors like Kenny Johnson, Erin Daniels and Brad Dourif. All you need is the guts to make a hard-hitting, forcefully original film that inadvertently links us to the quality offerings of yesterday. You can sigh, take a breath, real film-making isn't dead yet. Kenny Johnson's performance is stunning in its subtle yet forceful understanding of everything there is to know about the character he portrays, and then he delivers incredible surprises. Everyone in the cast is superb. Pappy's direction is intriguing and flawless. The film does not compromise but drives its relentless theme with the force of a hammer on the head of a nail. A great job. A daring, new kind of classic!
