“Texoma” takes us into the windy plains of the deep southwest. Rancher Clint Forest is being pushed and pulled in many different directions. He’s just been dumped by his girlfriend...again. She feels like Clint is too easygoing, and she doesn’t want to waste any more time with him. His ex-wife is insisting that he look into the suspicious death of an old friend. And to add a straw on the camel’s back, a rival rancher wants to take his land. But Clint will die before he lets that happen, or possibly kill.
Director Matt Jenkins loves a good story and “Texoma” is no exception. No matter if it’s a short film, documentary, or feature, Jenkins wants to produce the best possible movie. If you enjoy the storytelling of “Texoma,” consider it a continuation of his film Mirror Man.
Director Charles Stanley has a distinctive cinematic style. So distinctive, it makes his work desirable. Stanley has served on various award winning films and documentaries such as Banished Misfortune, Pray’s Passion, and The Last Dive.
With their superb storytelling skills, directors Jenkins and Stanley show us how the threads of love, money, rivalry, and death sew the lives of the people in the “Texoma” area together. For viewers, I’m sure it will be interesting to see how the land can hold the clues to solve one death, while preparing for another.
