Sweet Vengeance 2013, this is a movie that lightened my load


In the late 1800s, a fanatical religious leader, a renegade Sheriff, and a former prostitute collide in a blood triangle on the rugged plains of the New Mexico Territory. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2224004/

This film is written and directed by Logan and Noah Miller (who also act in it) and shows a true representation of the early and extreme behavior of the Mormons and their mission to populate the West. Jason Isaacs plays the creepy, patriarchal prophet and Ed Harris is his nemesis and I know not everyone appreciates Ed Harris the way I do, but his crazy sheriff portrayal has such panache.

I say it lightened my load because I met men in Utah who still carry the crazy notions expressed by the male characters and even though it is set in the past, any exposure at all of the American Taliban is valuable to me. It might be called revenge porn, but like the movie Inglourious Basterds, it provides an inkling of much needed satisfaction.

I considered putting this in the Movie group, but it doesn't quite match their SOP and I wanted to be sure anyone concerned with patriarchal abuse would see it.
