Alamo Bay (Blu-ray) Twilight Time
Director Louis Malle (Atlantic City, Murmur of the Heart) gives us a powerful film based on real-life events in Alamo Bay (1985), set in a small Texas coastal community where racial tensions escalate with the arrival of Vietnamese immigrants after the fall of Saigon. Native fishermen, encouraged by the Ku Klux Klan, turn violent when confronted with competition from the hard-working émigrés who only want their own piece of the American dream. Featuring superb performances from Ed Harris as a Vietnam vet on the verge of losing everything and Amy Madigan as his adulterous lover, crazy about him but compelled to do what she thinks is right. With a gorgeously melancholy score by Ry Cooder, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
