En español | Bill's take: Sporting a beard that would make ZZ Top proud, Duvall stars as a 1930s small-town misfit who, nearing the end of his hermitlike existence, throws a funeral for himself while he's still alive. Spacek, costarring as the woman who has a long-ago connection to the hermit, is always a delight, but it's the male stars who make an irresistible odd couple: Duvall as the curmudgeonly, secretive loner whose shadowy past is the subject of wild rumor, and Murray as the local mortician whose demeanor seems more akin to used-car salesman than professional mourner.
