Texas executed a Mexican citizen late Wednesday despite objections from Mexico, a former Texas governor and U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry. Edgar Tamayo Arias, 46, was put to death at 9:32 p.m. Central time for killing a Houston police officer in 1994, according to Jason Clark, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Tamayo made no last statement, Clark said. Tamayo's attorneys fought until the last minute to save his life, appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay of execution.

The first thing is, they are nearly always tempted to quit. Mostly, college football walk-ons think about it in August--hot days and long practices--and in November, when another season has passed and they still haven't played much since high school. But once in a while, they find themselves at the right school in the right year and one day it is Thanksgiving, and never before has this day meant so much.

Jason Clarke, who plays a CIA interrogator in "Zero Dark Thirty," might have needed a Zoloft while walking the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday. The academy's shutout of the film's Kathryn Bigelow in the Oscars' director category still had Clarke in a sad state. "I was depressed about it," the 43-year-old actor said. "I told her what she told me, 'Our reward was making the film' ... She's already got one, but it would have been nice for her to be recognized again. " GLOBES 2013: Full coverage | Ballot | Nominees | Snubs (Bigelow actually has two Oscars on her shelf for "The Hurt Locker," plus this year's Globe nomination in her pocket.)

"The Chicago Code" is almost precisely what you would expect from a cop drama created by Shawn Ryan for network television. And that is meant to be read with a sense of cautious celebration rather than cynical resignation. Ryan is the creator of "The Shield," which helped put FX on the map and remind viewers that a cop show does not have to be a procedural, that it could be just as much about character as crime, and that those characters could exist in the gloaming between good and evil.

Australian-born filmmaker John Hillcoat is no stranger to the dingy, lived-in menace lurking in haunted landscapes or to hard men who've seen a lot. They are the places and people who populate his films, including the fine Down Under western "The Proposition" and the less-powerful but still interesting adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic novel "The Road. " Unfortunately, his latest, the Depression-era gangster tale "Lawless," turns the Virginia hills of the early 1930s into just another backdrop for a clockwork succession of perfunctorily filmed showdowns and shootouts.

He was a decorated ROTC cadet, with medals to his name and trophies to show for long afternoon drills at Polytechnic High School in Long Beach. He was expected to become one of only six company commanders at the school this fall, and he hoped to become an Army officer after joining up next year. But for 18-year-old Virgil Jason Clarke, those dreams have been cast aside, at least for now.

The cost of executions is soaring, especially in the state that conducts the most: Texas. The reason? The necessary drugs have become increasingly hard to get. A year ago it cost the Texas Department of Criminal Justice $83.55 for the drugs used to carry out an execution -- sodium thiopental, pancuronium bromide and potassium chloride. Then last March the state was forced to replace sodium thiopental with pentobarbital after the U.S. supplier of the former drug halted distribution amid international protests.
