Plot – Spoilers:
Eli, out on parole, moves into a small neighborhood and helps out at his brother’s hardware store. But when the townsfolk realize he’s an ex-rapist, they aren’t sure if he’s capable of staying clean.

A TV movie by Lamont Johnson that’s thematically similar to The Woodsman. While not as good, the topic should perhaps be of interest – does a sex offender deserve a chance at rehabilitation, and if given the chance, what are the odds?

Odd music selection at the start. A middle age white man in a old pick up… of course he’ll be listening to current year hip hop.

We are all guilty to something. In a time where world war three is just luring around the corner, I doubt if there really still are some town gossip councils àla Agatha Christie who make your life difficult. By the way: would you really care?!

My own victimization notwithstanding (Four times, four different occasions, both genders) I still can’t understand how a sex crime is so much worse than any other violent crime (And isn’t it telling that Megan’s law and the victim feminist myth of rape culture started right here in the U.S.A. where the general public is only a little less puritanical than 3rd world Islamic countries and possesses less than a thimble’s full of knowledge of the prison industrial complex it created.) Anyway, the reaction most people today have to this movie and movies like it is the reason why I base my criteria for friendship not on a person’s religion, race, who they voted for or which gender’s crotch they want to marry, but on how many times I might have to hear the phrases “They should…”. Or ” Think of the children!” Stammer out of their shitholes. If either of those hysteria inducing clichés become audible to me more than once, it’s one time too many. On a very important side note, EUM really needs to be celebrated for more than just the movies. The films that you guys select tend to stimulate a lot of free and open discourse among us that we definitely would not be having on disgrace book or screwtube or any other mainstream social(ist) media service. PROPS! \m/.

Inexcusable and unjustified what they did to his dog. Exact revenge upon the human, not their animal because in my eyes, you’re just as disgusting or even more so for executing that innocent beautiful dog.
