One False Move

A reckoning is coming.

Four years before Sling Blade, Billy Bob Thornton co-wrote, and played the nastiest bad guy in, this consistently-surprising lil’ slice of neo noir.

Leaving bodies in their wake, a trio of criminals depart the bright lights of the big city and head for small-town Arkansas, where sheriff Dale Dixon (Bill Paxton) waits.

The only law in a small dot on the map, he is condescended to by LAPD detectives, but Dixon’s good ol’ boy exterior masks a first-rate cop, albeit it one with his fair share of secrets.

An early-’90s gem which hasn’t dulled a bit.
