One of my favorites
I don't know why more people have not reviewed this movie-maybe because it's relatively unknown? Either way, this movie is on my favorites list. The Slaughter Rule has a depth of emotion and feeling that I rarely see in movies these days. The charecters all pulse with life and Ryan Gosling and Clea Duvall give AMAZING performances, as does David Morse, as a troubled, multi-faceted football coach. The cinematography is simply gorgeous. The directors make even something as bleak as a the aftermath of a Montana blizzard seem beautiful, and there are moments of such perfect clarity in this film that it almost breaks your heart. The relationships between the charecters are layered and intense and you feel for each of them. One of the saddest, and most hauntingly beautiful films I have seen in quite some time. This one will grab you and not let you go.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Best of Year Movie and Soundtrack
This obscure movie is a real sleeper. It has the feeling of the times and place in which I grew up. The matching of the soundtrack and movie is flawless.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
