One of Johns Sayles’s best, Lone Star is a cross-generational, cross-cultural murder mystery, which features the terrifically understated Chris Cooper as an ambivalent, small-town Texas sheriff. Shown in flashback sequences are the previous generation’s lawmen in the form of one charismatic Matthew McConaughey (what happened, Matt?) and one rattlesnaky Kris Kristofferson.
