In the annals of patronizing movies about the civil rights movement, this has to be the loopiest. Meet Lucille (Melanie Griffith), a housewife who beheads her abusive husband and flees to Los Angeles. Another story line has Lucille’s nephew (Lucas Black) standing up to a bigoted sheriff. Antonio Banderas, making his directorial debut, can’t keep the schizophrenic plot from collapsing into unfortunate camp. D+
