WE BURY OUR SINS, WE WASH THEM CLEAN

Nothing great to say here. I actually saw Mystic River in the theater, when it was re-released for the Oscar campaign in 2004. We had actually gone to the theater with the intention of seeing The Passion of the Christ, but when that was sold out, chose Mystic River. Boy, am I glad we did. The Passion... is a fine film, but this is better. Great cast (needless to say because it's been said to death), great story and great, great score. Stills? Stills!








RATING: 9/10  Clint Eastwood's best? Probably, for my money. I will never get sick of this movie and really, it's one of those ones that I'll probably dust off and watch every couple years just because.
