Intruder in the Dust
Rural Mississippi in the 1940s: Lucas Beauchamp, a local black man with a reputation of not kowtowing to whites, is found standing over the body of a dead white man, holding a pistol that has recently been fired. Quickly arrested for murder and jailed, Beauchamp insists he's innocent and asks the town's most prominent lawyer, Gavin Stevens, to defend him, but Stevens refuses. When a local boy whom Beauchamp has helped in the past and who believes him to be innocent hears talk of a mob taking Beauchamp out of jail and lynching him, he pleads with Stevens to defend Beauchamp at trial and prove his innocence.

Hamburger Hill was as excellent depiction of and reality of the ground war really about. Comments about the really "good" Vietnam movies were the ones that strayed futher from reality and were probably made by one year olds at the time of the war. I believe it was the best true to life version of what the Vietnam War was really like. Everything from the phantom flash hiders on the M-16s, the cluster bombing, to having smoke under your pancho at night all rang true.

That was a big mistake. Not to knock his other works in any way, because I love them all, but this is his finest work.It's certainly his most direct work, that is. Smith's work lacks style and that's sort of the point. Life lacks style a lot of times, and that's what his movies are: reflections of life. In this type of situation the average man wouldn't know how to react, and being someone who's had trouble with a girlfriend's past before, this movie is spot-on.The script has a naturalism and ease to it that some of his other work hasn't had. "Clerks" was made to relate to average guys that love to talk about sex and Star Wars. I'm not that guy. "Mallrats" was made for guys like Kevin and his buddies who love to hang out at the mall all the time. That ain't me either. "Chasing Amy" doesn't really have a distinct audience that it gravitates towards. It has universal themes, and either you get it or you don't. I know plenty of people who hate Kevin's movies, and I know plenty of people who love them to death. Neither one is wrong per say, because all film is subjective, but this is one that can't be argued as unrelatable.Kevin Smith is a talented wordsmith (no pun intended) with a pension for honesty. He never barries the lead, and I respect that even if I don't always agree with him. This is a stellar film and a strong dose of honesty.
