"The Measure of a Man" is arguably better than the first film, as it focuses on one story, and does so efficiently and without unneeded padding. It is similarly low-key and reserved, and likewise has a Really Nasty villain. Not surprisingly, Goodnight tosses his guns aside and defeats the villain in a fistfight, rather than gunning him down.
I cannot praise the cinematography enough. "The Measure of a Man" is one of the best-photographed color films I have ever seen, including any theatrical film. It's gorgeous, and perhaps worth seeing for that reason alone. The photography justifies a Blu-ray transfer, though I doubt we'll ever see one.
If Mr Perry wants to keep making these films, I'm game to keep watching them. They're not "high art", but they're a not-stupid way to while away 88 minutes.
