Painted Hero A rodeo clown meets a woman who, during one night, dies under suspicious circumstances. The man is blamed for her murder, and now he has to clear his name.
A Hidden Gem.
“Painted Hero” is a really good movie. Dwight Yoakam is Virgil Kidder. He’s a rodeo clown. A long time ago he left his family, but now he’s come back. Then he meets Teresa (Kiersten Warren) who is a little crazy. She thinks she’s a vampire. During one night, Teresa dies under suspicious circumstances. Virgil is blamed for her murder, and now he has to clear his name.
This is a great movie because the acting is first-rate. Dwight Yoakam puts in a convincing performance. The writing is offbeat and different. I can’t believe this movie went DTV. It shouldn’t have met that fate.
In the end: If you want an unusual drama, “Painted Hero” is a good choice.
Rodeo clowns keep the bull from riding the cowboy.
