Death in Texas


Billy Walker (Blevins) is released from prison to find that his mother, Grace (Flynn Boyle), needs a liver transplant or will die within weeks. In the hospital she meets John (Lang) whom she shares some intimate moments with. In a last ditch effort to save her, Billy, descends into El Pasos’ dark underbelly of drugs and sex trafficking, discovering unlikely allies and redemption along the way. Billy and his mother wrestle with a lifetime of bad choices, and in the end, only one decision can save them both.


  • Scott Windhauser finds a fresh way to deal with old genre business in "Death in Texas." He commits to character and performance, working to get the audience invested in these damaged people and their emotional history, making clear connections between the players while gradually increasing tension.
  • Boyle has had a number of misfires over the course of her career, but here she really delivers, and she has great chemistry with Lang. The other main performances are similarly impressive.
  • Ronnie Gene Blevins deserves credit for his hardboiled but understated performance as Walker.
  • This cast is excellent. Bruce Dern brings that same grit that is present in the entire film and it makes him a perfect baddie. As for Stephen Lang, he’s a great actor, giving a great performance of a terribly written character. Truthfully, that’s the heart of the issue with this film. It’s a grouping of excellent performances.
