The Cohen Brothers’ remake of True Grit, starring Matt Damon and an incomprehensible Jeff Bridges, filmed in New Mexico – I’m guessing because of the incentives as much as for the pristine Old West landscapes. You all know the story of the prissy teenage girl who hires a bounty hunter to track her father’s killer and then goes along for the ride.
To be honest, I don’t have much to report from the film. I preferred the original? Matt Damon’s good? It’s not the best Cohen Brothers work I’ve ever seen? I liked it, just not massively, and it failed to move me in any way, positively or negatively. Sad but true.
