Would you run to a film with a gloppy one-word title? I wouldn’t. But having chosen our last film — Danny Boyle’s loathsome ‘Trance’ — the choice wasn’t mine. And the New York Times review was enthusiastic. And ‘Mud’ stars Matthew McConaughey. So off we went. Verdict: a terrific movie, acutely written, brilliantly acted, tense and funny. And original, which, is this season of sequels, is almost reason enough to see it.
