Sayles new movie is getting a lot of hype. So with much anticipation I began to watch this movie. It is the story of a down and out club owner and piano player, Danny Glover, in rural cotton country Alabama. The club owner is troubled, behind in the rent and harrased by the local sheriff. There is a slide playing blind man who offers words of wisdom, played by Keb Mo, and a young guitar hero, our own Gary Clark Jr., who rolls into town in a train boxcar. There is also the young beautiful country girl who dreams of making it big in the city. Any of this sound cliche, well, it is. This is how the whole movie comes across. It is a story that has been told many times before and where as the acting in this movie is well done, the movie as a whole falls flat and seems to drag. I found myself waiting to see Gary Clark and Keb Mo play and getting frustrated that it was taking so long.
