A mediocre film might be excused somewhat by the merit of some ambition, but the problem with "Old Henry" is that there isn't enough of that, either.

As it stands, there's a healthy amount to admire and for some it may be enough to scratch a certain itch. But much of Old Henry feels a lot like its protagonist: worn-out, weathered, and old.

Playing an isolated farmer who finds a fugitive, the character actor Tim Blake Nelson delivers world-weary greatness.

A very simple and ingeniously crafted cowboy yarn.

Blake Nelson, one of our finest actors, gives Henry's mysterious inner life physical expression.

Tim Blake Nelson ... has the most convincingly exhausted and forlorn hangdog expression in contemporary cinema.
