Sayles' latest never bores during its 21/4-hour unreeling. But neither does it soar, despite finessing a complex flashback narrative set in 1957 and present-day.

One of several of writer-director John Sayles's masterpieces -alongside such unforgettable films as "City of Hope," "Matewan" and "The Secret of Roan Inish" - "Lone Star" is an absorbing neo-Western mystery told in a haunting magical realist tone.

Lone Star, one of Sayles best and most popular films, explores the historical strain between the Mexican and American communities in Texas. Though a bit didactic (too many sermons), it's well acted and visually more satisfying than his other films

The great, stirring epic "Lone Star" stands as a peak in the career of John Sayles, who already has such admirably serious films to his credit.
