Tonight's the night I watched Hud.

It was the one on the top of the pile of library movies. Five minutes in, I almost popped it out.

I saw it once before, as a young adult, but a less sophisticated observer (of cinema, of people, of everything).

Is Hud hard-wired, with a "barbed wire soul," as the tagline has it, or does he have free will, within the constraints of his circumstances? Or did he have it and at some point come to lose it, along with his desire for it, having become more powerless with time & the choices he had already made?

This kind of thing is hardly the point of the film. But neither is most of the rest of what I was thinking.

I'm gonna give it 5 stars at Netflix.
