Down in the Valley

Edward Norton, Evan Rachel Wood, David Morse and Bruce Dern stars in this offbeat Western/romance set in modern-day San Fernando Valley. Norton ( Fight Club ) headlines as a seemingly delusional dude who claims to be a gunslinging cowboy (yeah, in The Valley) who meets and falls in love with an ordinary teenage girl (Thirteen's Evan Rachel Wood). The film starts out as a laconic characters study; but the script doesn't really have anywhere to go, and it all ends up in too-psychological, too-symbolic territory. Kind of sad, really, because the film is a beautifully lensed, subtly acted tribute to '70s-era cinema like Badlands and Taxi Driver. 125 minutes R.
