I will say good day to you sir

I'm going to go see the Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada in either five or eight hours, at which point this post will expand to include some thoughts on it. Until then, of the critics at the link, the only ones whose opinion I tend to trust (Tobias and Dargis), both like it. Also in its favor, no one whom I trust at all dislikes it.

If you want something to read for now, I recommend scrolling back through the archibe of these well-written musings by a Northeasterner displaced to Mississippi (previously, Japan). Here's the author of that blog being mentioned in one of Matt Yglesias's earlier posts. That makes him only a step or two away from being a blog celebrity, right?
