I accidentally spent a night in Butte, Montana, not too long ago -- cool-looking town. Poisonous lake on a hill, old brick buildings, all the neon signs. It reminded me of how much I liked the movie Don't Come Knocking, directed by Wim Wenders in 2005 and seen by I think practically no one. Sam Shepard wrote the screenplay and stars in it as a grizzled and vulnerable Sam Shepard type guy, alongside Jessica Lange, who is always perfect. T Bone Burnett did all the music. It's better, moodier, and less actiony than the preview makes it look, but here's that anyway:Recommended!
