The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
(Columbia TriStar)
In this modern-day western, actor-director Tommy Lee Jones delivers one of the year’s most unexpected and moving dramas. The fragmented first reel introduces a large ensemble cast that quickly closes in to just a few: Texas ranch worker (Jones) brings the body of his friend into Mexico while kidnapping the man who done him in.
