Mud is the latest film from writer/director Jeff Nichols, who previously made Shotgun Stories and Take Shelter.  It is a nice change of pace, as Mud is the Nichols’ film with the most humor so far.  With Mud, Nichols continues to make wildly different films, despite setting them in the same type of locations with […]
