Last night I saw “In the Valley of Elah” and “3:10 to Yuma.” I thought the former was an amazing film; a harsh critique of the War in Iraq and the devastation it has wrought on the troops coming home as well as on the occupied in Iraq. The film is based on a true story. The movie, however, was completely eclipsed by the 2nd film we saw that night: “3:10 to Yuma.” It was an ode to the classic western film and brilliantly played by Christian Bale and Russell Crowe. By the way, I think Christiane Bale is one of the best actors in Hollywood today and one of my favorites. His performances in “Rescue Daw,” “The Prestige,” “Batman Begins,” “The Machinist,” and “American Psycho” were flawless.
