Duel in the Sun meets It's a Wonderful Life -- in the oddest of ways. The Hi-Lo Country gives us Harrelson and Crudup as best friends in post-WWII New Mexico, where cowboys still rule a land forgotten by time. Over two rather dragging hours, a story of Harrelson's affair with the married Arquette unfolds, with Crudup lusting for the girl as well (not to mention while he courts Cruz), and Sam Elliott's evil cattle baron overseeing it all (and corrupting Harrelson's brother, Hauser). Got all that? Hi-Lo often ventures into the realm of the truly baffling, but it isn't without its charms, as Harrelson is quite engaging in his role.
