Tired Moonlight

80 minutes
, ,

Every town has a post office, lovers, guns, switchblades and beer. You just have to know where to look and when to look the other way. Pitting grand landscapes against dinners of fried chicken and the roar of V8 engines on Saturday nights. Tired Moonlight wanders through Solitaire games (always won), secrets lost in cavernous hearts, and the fifty miles of bad roads that always gets you home.

Ms. West has an easygoing, perceptive sense of character and place, and an almost complete allergy to cliché. TIRED MOONLIGHT has some of the romantic melancholy promised in its title, but it’s also full of the oddness and vitality that are essential to the continued promise of American cinema (and American life).
