The tale of an outlaw who escapes from prison and sets out across the Texas hills to reunite with his wife and the daughter he has never met. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS is written and directed by David Lowery. If felt this film was a likeable slow moving noir like crime thriller. There were moments of ambiguity throughout the film as to the set of events that actually set things into motion. I think the ambiguity plays well within the way the story was told. I felt the characters we believable, as well as the actors, which played them. The pace like I had mentioned, had a methodical and deliberate unfolding, although the ending of the film wasn’t a surprise. That simple aspect made for an interesting lead up, but not much real anticipation. So for THEM BODIES AIN’T SAINTS I give it 3 stars.
