Sling Blade (1996)

A mesmerising performance from Billy-Bob Thornton. His character looks nothing like the actor above, but I'm assured he played the lead role. I'm reminded of Leonardo deCaprio's role in What's eating Gilbert Grape, except Sling Blade is much more tightly written.

I thought this Coen brothers movie might depress me, but it had the opposite effect.
