Small Town Murder Songs2010

  • 3.4
When a young, unidentified woman is found dead by the lake (the victim of a brutal and violent crime), Walter, an aging small town police officer (Peter Stormare), is called to the scene of the town's first murder investigation in decades. Haunted by his past, and hampered by the mistrust of the community and a state police officer overseeing the investigation, he sets out to solve the murder, complicated by his ex-lover (Jill Hennessy) and his suspicion of her current boyfriend. As he delves deeper into the crime, his newly-reformed life begins to unravel threatening his relationship with Sam (Martha Plimpton) and intertwining itself within the investigation and possibly the murder itself.

Great cast, good story and very well done. Peter Stromare was superb as was the rest of the cast. The music and the chapter titles were very different and gave tension and mystery to the story.

enjoyed the film up until the ending.I thought it was abrupt and could have explained how and why the murder was committed.The film was very realistic with believable characters.I felt it had a "Fargo" quality to it

Sparse, atmospheric film with well-written characters whose histories are written in their eyes. Very short. Ending is abrupt but the music and the pacing make it satisfying.

Rousing, savage, thump, thump...soundtrack. Check it out, I'm looking up Bruce Peninsula (music by) now.
