There are some late, minor twists in Galveston that suggest the movie has more on its mind than it lets on - but they ultimately don't amount to much.

"Galveston" is tough, uncompromising, and hauntingly believable, just a little too slow and a lot too serious for today's typical action audiences.

With shadowy imagery that pushes the boundaries of visibility and a mumbly lead performance from Ben Foster that strains the limits of intelligibility, "Galveston" goes past film noir and lands at film murk.

It's uncompromising but at the end, it does leave some room for hope and Foster, in his intense, contained way, makes Roy's redemption highly plausible unexpectedly poignant.

A muted crime drama that runs out of plot too soon, but makes up for it with powerhouse performances and a finely shaded sense of place.

A seedy but sincere and strikingly attractive picture adapted from the novel by Nic Pizzolatto.
