Movie: True Grit

Great fun ... as one expects from the Coen Brothers. This one is not as grisly as I was expecting from all of the disclaimers. I particularly enjoyed the dialogue, though it is sometimes sophisticated enough that it approaches, and perhaps crosses, the boundary of realism. The NYT review does a nice job of fitting the movie into its social and film-historical contexts.
