Critic Reviews for Death & Texas

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

While it would like to be nimble, light-footed satire, too often Death and Texas stumbles on its own earnestness, wearing cement shoes when it should be tap-dancing.

November 2, 2006 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

An uneasy (and very unfunny) marriage of sports culture satire and death penalty polemic.

November 2, 2006 | Full Review…

[A] magnificent piece of agitprop.

Top Critic

Unique and gripping, is an unlikely combo of pro US football and the death penalty

March 14, 2009 | Full Review…

[B]risk and wickedly pointed...

November 20, 2006 | Full Review…

The Gridiron meets The Guillotine . . .a smart, funny dark comedy . . . one that also delivers a very somber message and a clever argument against the Death Penalty
