Sling Blade

Billy Bob Thornton has done some credible work, but he has yet to surpass the power of his writing-directing-acting debut. In this dark 1996 drama, he plays Karl Childers, a mentally handicapped murderer released from a psychiatric hospital after many years who returns to his small hometown and tries to start a new life. Especially powerful is the presence of Lucas Black, who so convincingly portrays the young boy our hero (?) befriends. 135 minutes
