Movie Reviews

Excellent Film
csteins | Austin | 11/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I watched a pre-screening of CRAWFORD at the Boston Independent Film Festival, found that it far exceeded my expectations and have since purchased the DVD. The film was all at once informing, entertaining and touching - and in a very personal way. I found myself blurting out laughter, fighting off tears and engaging in the very satisfying laugh-cry combination. The film tells an important story about the impact of George Bush's arrival on the town of Crawford, which is a microcosm of small-town America, and Crawford's story in many ways seems to be an analogue to Bush's impact on America more broadly. Small-town America is often referenced (or dismissed) with respect to its 'helping Bush get elected'. CRAWFORD compelled me to reconsider the broad-brush manner in which small town America has been painted in the recent past as the film renders a far more in-depth, thoughtful and even-handed picture of a very important part of our country and our world. Take a look and see for yourself. It's a must-see for sure."
Crawford - a surprisingly sweet take on small-town America

"Encountering this film at Netroots Nation, a convention of the liberalest bloggers ever, I thought it might contain a fair amount of the heavy-handed Bush-bashing I've come to know. Well, it didn't.

Crawford is a balanced and compassionate portrait of everyday Americans living their lives in a town that happened to be adopted by a president. The film works because the filmmakers built trust with the residents of Crawford, and it shows."
This aint Michael Moore...

"A really unbiased entertaining presentation of the people of Crawford, with excellent character development. This is a really good movie, and I highly recommend it."
