Some Folks Call it a SlingBlade
Directed by George Hickenlooper (Hearts of Darkness, The Brass Ring) "Some Folks call it a Sling Blade" is the short film that inspired the academy award winning feature. Sling Blade introduces us to Karl Childers, the disturbed man who somehow manages to both chill and warm our hearts at the same time. Written by and starring Billy Bob Thornton, it represents the perfect example of a short film providing a platform for rising talent (Drama/ Originally 26 minutes edited down to 20 for time reasons).
