I rated The Mule 7/10 on IMDb


A simple and unsensational story of an old man and failed father enjoying driving while smuggling drugs across state lines.

Family events are played very well with credible emotion and tension.

Some run-ins with the tough guys make it tense at times.

Great to see a crime and law enforcement movie whose main protagonist isn’t involved in ridiculous car chases and impossible shoot outs while toting a hand gun.

I particularly liked the commentary on modern life. Mostly shared in a single conversation in a diner. Carpe diem.

This film has drugs, guns, cars, family, and sex. But not presented in the way your familiar with.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
