I think Billy Bob Thornton should write more.
“Sling Blade” – which earned him a writing Oscar plus a Writers Guild Award – was one of my favorite films of the ’90s. Just beautifully written.
Thornton also co-wrote “A Family Thing,” a 1996 drama in which Robert Duvall discovers that his mother was black. I remember enjoying it.
But I’d plum forgot (if I ever knew) that Billy Bob Thornton co-wrote “One False Move,” the thriller that launched Carl Franklin’s directing career.
Gene and Roger both loved “One False Move.” (Believe or not, I never got around to seeing it. Just now ordered the DVD off Amazon for cheap.)
