Movie Reviews

The Melancholy Living of the Modern Midwest
9 2 5... | elevated plane of awareness | 06/04/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Katherine Lindberg's directorial debut exhibits her strong talent as a filmmaker, but unfortunately did little to boost her career. In most critic's eyes, the movie has potential, but ultimately fails to achieve its goals. I found it to be satisfying; one just has to overlook its main flaws (acting, dialogue, pacing) like any other film.

Lindberg worked with many newcomers on this film, so the viewer shouldn't expect phenomenal acting on their part. The film was shot in an authentic midwestern town, using real actors from the area. Melora Waters, playing the lead character Ellen, is a notable actress previously seen from "Magnolia," and "Speaking of Sex." Her graceful acting guides her fellow cast members as she fits into her character rather well. There is definately a hint of reality from the film since it was shot on location in a real midwestern town. This simple convention contributes to the film's already downtrodden atmosphere.

The film is a deeply personal take on modern values and morality. It is a story set in a midwestern town with no future and chronicles a series of murder, lies, and secret pasts. It shares its roots with ancient Greek tragedies and exudes strong Oedipal undertones. The film drips with the sense that something is off, and this disturbance bubbles and explodes at the film's climax.

In all, the film is a good viewing. Presented by Martin Scorcese, it is not for those with short attention spans, nor is it for the weak of stomach. This modern tragedy is recommended."
