5.0 out of 5 stars To spin a yarn. Aug. 13 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Mud is a beautiful film; thoughtfully written, artfully shot and expertly directed.

At its essence, Mud is about a boy growing in to manhood, and coming to understand love in all its forms -- between friends, a parent to a child, a man for a woman, and that how one person knows love as one thing, another person knows it as another.

Best friends Ellis and Neck find an abandoned boat in a tree left behind from the last flood, and will use it as their own secret base. They discover that their secret boat is not so secret, as a man has been living from it for a couple days -- the titular, Mud. The story follows the boys as Mud tells them how his circumstances led him to his current state: he is meeting his girlfriend, but he's in some trouble and will need some help to get back on his feet. Ellis, a believer of true love prevailing above all, that love is something you hold tight and fight for, decides to help Mud.

Matthew McConaughey really is fantastic in this. The boys, Tye Sheridan (Ellis) and Jacob Lofland (Neckbone) are spectacular too!

*** POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD ***

Storytelling is at its finest, when you come to realize that Mud's increasingly complicated past (metaphorically) parallels Ellis's current life, and that is what is driving Ellis's desire to help Mud. Ellis is innocent, and his understanding of love is so pure, you almost want to believe in happy endings too. This movie is almost magic; set in the woods, surrounded by water, and whispered secrets by the bonfire.

I wish I could articulate this better, but if it's not clear yet: I really like this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars McConaughey Excels Oct. 15 2013
By Peter McNicol TOP 500 REVIEWER

Matthew McConaughey certainly picks 'different' roles. An unusual story, well told and entertaining. An enjoyable movie and well worth watching. Thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Riveting drama Oct. 12 2013
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Two fourteen-year old boys befriend a stranger (Matthew McConaughey) who has been living on their secret island in the Mississippi River. His name is "Mud," he's wanted for murder, and he's being followed by some very dangerous men.

This movie is a real gem; it's smart, honest, and edge-of-your-seat exciting. It portrays the boys' hardscrabble life in their backwater town with uncompromising violence and grit and is also filled with decency, understanding, and many forms of love.

The two newcomers who play the boys are natural actors, both expressive and sympathetic. McConaughey plays a tough guy who never had a break; he's an anti-hero to root for. Reese Witherspoon has a small but important role as Mud's trampy girlfriend and Sam Shepherd and Joe Don Baker round out the excellent cast.

All of the characters are well-developed and the audience comes to really care about them. The story blends good bits from "Stand By Me," "A Perfect World," "Whistle Down the Wind," and even "Tom Sawyer" and is still unique. It pulls no punches and is truly enjoyable. 4.5 stars.

I found the movie very slow - others inthe household liked it very well but I wasn't too excited about it. I would never watch it twice.
