There are thoughts that make the strong heart weak

In the Bedroom
is bleak. I seem to be on a roll with the bleak actually. After this and this, you'd think I'd be done with it. Apparently not so much.

This movie is gorgeously shot. Every scene seems so deliberate and well thought out. Tom Wilkinson and Sissy Spacek are marvelous. The scene of their fight is so painful it made my chest hurt. And that look on her face!

One complaint though - there's an early scene that gives away exactly where this movie is going. I liked it, but it just left me dreading the outcome that was so obviously on its way.

This one is getting a 7.5 in my book.
