Whew! It’s been a long time since I posted here. New baby, night feedings, then I had pneumonia, blah blah. Anyway, here’s a short review I wrote for Salt Lake City Weekly about Vincent D’Onofrio’s The Kid, a new-ish take on the Billy the Kid story.

Rio Cutler (Jake Schur) and his sister Sara (Leila George) kill their psycho father and hit the prairie with their evil uncle (a surprisingly dark Chris Pratt) in hot pursuit; because this is the movies, they naturally cross paths with Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan) while he’s on the run from Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke). Killing ensues.
