Robert Duvall always has been a respected actor and even an Oscar winner (for "Tender Mercies"), but he has scored some of the best reviews of his career for this fact-inspired comedy-drama about a longtime recluse who decides to stage his own funeral.
He wants to face down various rumors that have been spread about him during his absence from society; the fine cast also includes Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek, Lucas Black and veteran character actor Bill Cobbs. DVD extras: four "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Duvall, Spacek, director Aaron Schneider and executive producer Dean Zanuck; cast and crew interview session. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
