Lone Star 4K 01/20/24
Texas becomes a battleground for change: the law ‘n’ order image of the Texas Rangers, the attitudes of established immigrants, a soldier trying to instill older values and a teacher trying to inspire new ones. How do we deal with the controversial past, public and private. Director John Sayles’ vivid screenplay benefits from excellent performances by Chris Cooper, Elizabeth Peña, Kris Kristofferson, Matthew McConaughey, Miriam Colon, Joe Morton, Clifton James, Ron Canada — the list goes on. Sayles’ most satisfying drama puts the conflicts of the cultural divide in clear terms. History plays ironic tricks on all of the characters, no preference given. On 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
