Deep Red Bells

Last week I used the often times trusty Netflix recommendation for a movie and King of California was sent to our house. The film starts Michael Douglas and Evan Rachel Wood and is the story of Douglas' character, Charlie, who has been released from a mental hospital and come home to live with his daughter, Miranda (Wood's character).

The story gets interesting with Charlie begins convincing Miranda that he's found the way to trace a hidden treasure left buried somewhere in southern California by a great Mexican traveler.

The story is entertaining and Douglas does an amazing job of playing an un-polished, crazy man. I wouldn't rush this one to the top of your cue, but it was a fun movie to watch. Good story, great visuals and nice choices of music.
