In the Electric Mist on DVD

The novelist James Lee Burke introduced his troubled Cajun detective Dave Robicheaux in In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead (1993), a terrific novel in which Dave’s horrendous experiences in the Vietnam War revisit him in unsettling ways.

The film version, directed by Bertrand Tavernier, was scheduled to be released last year. That didn’t happen for whatever reason and the film, starring the great Tommy Lee Jones as Dave and the great John Goodman as ultra bad guy “Baby Feet” Balboni” is just out on video. We’ll have a review just as soon as it arrives from Netflix.
