Review
When Melquides Estrada is found murdered it is presumed he's just another illegal immigrant and consequently of no concern to the American authorities. Buried in an unnamed pauper's grave it would seem that is the end of the matter, but Melquaides knew a good man in ranch foreman Pete Perkins, a tough as nails individual determined to see justice done and honour the wishes of his dead friend. 'Three Burials' is a mesmerising tale of friendship, revenge and redemption, driven by a dominating performance from Tommy Lee Jones, who also directs with a fine eye for the stunning scenery, and scripted by one of the finest modern writers of unflinching human drama, Guillermo Arriaga.
