Goofs

When the Sheriff is talking to the deputy at about 18 minutes or so, I noticed that the rank insignia they wear is not correct for their rank in the department. They are wearing Army rank insignia on their epaulets and the deputy is wearing Corporal rank which is a higher rank than the rank the Sheriff is wearing, which is Private First Class. It should be the other way around since the Sheriff is supposed to be higher in rank. Oops. See more »

You never are quite sure what is going on and it keeps you guessing all the way until the end. That's the sign of a good movie.
23 March 2014 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"You're not from around here. You got no identification. You got no car. You're covered in dirt like you've been digging somewhere and to top it all off..." Two college professors are working on a study in racial dynamics and bias. They plan to rob a bank in a small town record how they are treated before they give the money back. Things are going as planned until they find a sheriff (Sadler) who will stop at nothing to get a positive identification. When the partner doesn't show up with the money to prove it's all an act things take a serious turn. This is a difficult movie to review. It is very good but it's hard to talk too much about it without giving anything away. I will say though that the movie at the same time breaks down and supports certain stereotypes, when you watch you will see what I mean. The best part of the movie though is that you never are quite sure what is going on and it keeps you guessing all the way until the end. This is the type of movie where there is really no defined good or bad guys. That makes a movie more fun to watch. Overall, a movie that stays one step ahead of you the entire time, I like movies like that. I give this a B+.
