The movie, not the act! :) And no, it's not a porno.

The funny thing is, I *know* the people in the movie. Not the actual people themselves, of course, but people like that. It's amazing the path of destruction that methamphetamines has carved through the American landscape. It's no joke at all. This film communicates some of that destruction, but also shows that family bonds still mean something and are ever-resilient. Great acting work by John Hawkes and Jennifer Lawrence.

PS: I think the icon I attached to this post stands for radioactivity. I thought it kinda looked like a film canister!

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

It is a fantastic movie!

The tension runs just under the surface all the time, and set against the overall bleakness of the way they live, it is really amazing.

I sorta grew up in this kind of economic, uhhhhhh... "disadvantaged" situation. The daily grind of poverty and hopelessness is overwhelming at times.

The slightest chance that things will be better is impossible to resist.

Brilliant story telling.

The book was also great, and if you are into southern noir sorta shizz, Woodrell's The Death of Sweet Mister is worth reading.
