I really do feel bad that writer/director Rod Lurie's most interesting and accomplished film, Nothing But The Truth, got the bum's rush due to nefarious distrib snafus, but you know, that wasn't my fault. In some personal correspondence with the cordial filmmaker, he's given me the impression that he believes me to be unsympathetic to his overall cinematic project, and that's truly not the case...however...well, I just cannot get behind his rethink of Straw Dogs, for reasons I get into in my review of the film for MSN Movies. I'm sure here we'll have occasion to flesh out the discussion a bit. That's Kate Bosworth brandishing the weapon above.
