View All Critic Reviews May 14, An offbeat and odd morality tale that burns in your memory, Tommy Lee Jones' film nonetheless bleeds with all of the bullets and brawn masculinity exhibited in such Sam Peckinpah western classics as The Wild Bunch and Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia.
Two years before No Country for Old Men which Jones starred in gave filmgoers an instant 21st century classic, one of that film's stars nailed the same serio-comic tone and stripped bare violence in a similar tale of the American West.
Topical on the subjects of geopolitics and the Mexican quotient of Mexican-American without being a tutorial, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada excellently pits the very U.
In this R-rated modern western, Ranch hand Pete Perkins Jones looks to fulfill the promise to his recently deceased best friend by burying him in his hometown in Mexico with the help of the careless man who shot him Pepper.
From premise to fulfilling the protagonists promise, Tommy Lee Jones delivers an A-Level directorial debut. You can hear the pitch black humor and laid-bare honesty of Cormac McCarthy in dialogue that's exchanged like bullets in a shootout Jones' Pete is a man of scruples, as is the actor's direction.
He tames Arriagas rugged dusty landscape and nails a role that's just as much a scrupulous oddball. Bottom line: All the Pretty Horsesense. Jeff B Super Reviewer.
Aug 30, I don't think I really have much to say about this movie but it is a well-written and incredibly well-acted movie.
It features one Tommy Lee Jones' more understated and heartfelt performances as this man who's only trying to do right by his friend after he was unjustly murdered by a border patrolman.

User Ratings. Perkins kidnaps Norton after tying up his wife, Lou Ann, and forces him to dig up Melquiades' body. Perkins undertakes a journey on horseback into Mexico with the body tied to a mule and his captive Norton in tow.
It is clear to Sheriff Belmont that Perkins has kidnapped Norton, and so police officers and the Border Patrol begin to search for them.
Belmont sees them heading towards the Mexico border, but as he takes aim at Perkins, he can't bring himself to shoot and returns to town, leaving the pursuit to Border Patrol.
On their way across the harsh countryside, the pair experience a series of surrealistic encounters. They spend an afternoon with an elderly blind American, who listens to Mexican radio for company.
The man asks to be shot since there is no one left to take care of him. He does not want to commit suicide because, he argues, doing so would offend God.
Perkins refuses as it would offend God. Norton attempts to escape and is bitten by a rattlesnake and eventually discovered by a group of illegal immigrants crossing into Texas.
Perkins gives one of them a horse as barter payment for guiding them across the river to an herbal healer.
She turns out to be a woman whose nose Norton had broken when he recently punched her in the face during an arrest. At Perkins's request, she saves Norton's life before exacting her revenge by breaking Norton's nose with a coffee pot.
The captivity, the tiring journey, and the rotting corpse slowly take a profound psychological toll on Norton. At one point the duo encounter a group of Mexican cowboys watching American soap operas on a television hooked up to their pickup truck.
The program is the same episode that was airing when Norton had sex with his wife in their trailer earlier in the movie.
Norton is visibly shaken and is given half a bottle of liquor by one of the cowboys. Norton's wife is shown as she decides to leave the border town to return to her home town of Cincinnati.
She has grown distant from her husband and seems unconcerned about his kidnapping, stating that he is "beyond redemption".
