    This was the worst piece of crap movie I have ever seen. I like the actors but the direction and writing was so tasteless and gross.

    I love john cusack. He's not at his most attractive in this, but in a strange way he's sexy in a dangerous way.

    Zac Efron as a little farm boy with a funny facial hair, Nicole Kidman as a local, cheap whore with a seriosly trashy blonde haircut (this is what love is - I love her even when she plays some trashy character) and all this come with a good texan accent and some seriosly ugly dudes.

    Don't mind the mess, Nicole had to go tickle on Zac Efron to save his life.

    I wonder why people dont like this kinda of original,artistic and dark dramas.But like stupid action movies that has an explosion every minute.This film was great.Story telling, camera shots, characters and sttings of places were all great.No wonder this was in cannes.
