The Burning Plain (2008): review: 2.5/10

In New Mexico and Oregon, hanky panky between Mexicans and Americans leads to all sorts of complications.

A film sunk with sincerity: it drags despite good acting. It also has a fussy plot.

Here is an example of how political correctness can afflict an art form: the aim is to teach, not to divert or suprise. Such films are always humourless because the merchants of p.c know that nothing is so threatenening to their moralistic universe as the spontanity of laughter.

 At times this film approached misery porn.
