Billy Bob Thorn­ton di­rected the adap­ta­tion of Cor­mac Mc­carthy’s novel and al­most killed Matt Da­mon’s ca­reer. Which is a pity, be­cause it de­served more than the pal­try box of­fice it at­tracted. Da­mon plays John Grady Cole, a cow­boy who drifts south of the bor­der in search of ad­ven­ture and, in­deed, dis­cov­ers wealthy rancher’s daugh­ter Ale­jan­dra de la Rocha ( Pene­lope Cruz). Bad move. Ter­rific cast in­cludes Henry Thomas, Lu­cas Black, Robert Pa­trick and Ruben Blades.
