Director: Martin Ritt
Plot: Aging rancher struggles with his brash and callous son.
Excerpts from our roundtable discussion:
BLOOM: If we were to make this harder and say we have to pick the best movie based on a Larry McMurtry story, even though I think I should vote for Last Picture Show, emotionally I want to vote for Hud. Hud to me captures the loneliness and seething undercurrent of Texas lives.
KELLY: Fortunately, you don’t. Does anyone have objections to both of those movies being on the list? [No objections raised.]
