The Sunset Limited Available on DVD and Blu-ray in February

It is always tricky to adapt a play to a feature film, effortless to do so for TV, though that's most likely a gross exaggeration. HBO is probably the right place to do that. Even more trickier to keeping a swift and viewable pace with only two cast members and strong religious dialog. Luckily, Samuel L. Jackson, Tommy Lee Jones and Cormac McCarthy have no difficulty with this. The Sunset Limited is appealing, interesting and heartfelt.

The whole movie takes place in a Harlem apartment. The director, Tommy Lee Jones exercises a very modest style of filming, using nothing too fancy to allow the acting to stand out.

Jones stars as a professor, only referred to in the tributes as White, who lately tried to commit suicide. He is a disbeliever that really hates life itself, finding everything in the world totally useless. Jackson stars as an ex-con turned minister, referred to in the tributes as Black. He is a believer of the Bible, and struggles to save the life of White. The clashing of thoughts is a devastating experience that is lifted up by the commitment in the performances. Jackson is religiously inspired person and devoted to save the life of White, while he is also a layered one with baggage that bites. Jones is a smart Professor who fails to understand the meaning of happiness and purpose. Everything to him is useless, and Jones delivers that character with ease.
