Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas

I was talking with someone recently about underrated films with high profile actors.

One of the first films to pop up was Get Low (2010), which stars Bill Murray, Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, and Gerald McRaney in a dark comedy with plenty of drama. Indeed, the film almost plays like a fable. 

Typically, films of this genre have a tendency to drag and, in effect, bore the audience. But what makes this film stand out is the efficient pace it keeps with entertaining the audience while simultaneously engaging in beautiful storytelling. 

via Google:

When much-feared hermit Felix Bush (Robert Duvall) comes to town with a wad of cash and announces his intention to preside over his own funeral, fast-talking mortician Frank Quinn (Bill Murray) smells a big payday in the air. Frank sends his young apprentice, Buddy, to charm Felix and win Felix's business. As the day of the unusual event approaches, Buddy uncovers a long-held secret involving the hermit, a local widow (Sissy Spacek) and an Illinois preacher.
