Some of the artistic license in this film is nice, but I think that some of the film is over-embellished. A good story, but more straight-forward drama would have made it more absorbing. The death scene at the end is heart-wrenching, a nice addition to the Cattle Mutilation Club. But I just don’t know about the ending. It was a bad place and a bad way to end the movie.

A slew of stars in this movie, some young, some old. It very much bridged the gap between old and new.
