    I’m a fan of his work in Bad Santa, yeah, Slingblade was great, but Billy Bob as Willie was just something fresh to watch, and it had a great/awesome soundtrack. cheers and happy new year, i love public television AND i don’t live in brooklyn!

    A terrific movie. All throughout you have to wonder what the real motives are for all of the characters and their actions. Is it better to move on or can one really redeem themselves with another. Amazing to see how much baggage all of the characters had to carry in their journeys.
