Movies Watched -- Mudbound (2017)

Added on by C. Maoxian.

135 minutes with seven minutes of end credits so it's still over 30 minutes too long. Depressing and a tear-jerker. You know something horrible is going to happen the whole time (1940s Mississippi, after all), you have a sense of doom, you know, oncoming tragedy. Female star is Carey Mulligan and her funny ventriloquist dummy face. She's talented and has gotten a *lot* of work in recent years. "Mike Ehrmantraut" plays the villain ... always makes a good bad guy.

The movie wasn't badly made, it's just overly long (Rex said it should be called Stuck-in-the-Mudbound). The atrocities committed by racist white men not that long ago shouldn't be forgotten ... but it isn't entertainment. They tried to end it on an upbeat note, but it's still painful to watch. Yellow rating.
