A breathtaking gaze into the heart of America.
14 August 1999 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

SURE FIRE is a striking and haunting film; shot in glorious anti-establishment 16mm color, it uses the small frame to drill deep and quickly into the souls of a few everyday hicks in Utah. This is my first Jost film and I have to say that I am blown away by what he can do with such a small budget (he filmed, directed, and edited it himself) and it serves as quite an inspiration to this hopeful filmmaker. Better than any high-budget film I've seen this year (with the exception of Eyes Wide Shut, of course) and it was made in 1993, but my point is that SURE FIRE is a dark and disturbing portrait of America, beautifully executed, and well shot. *wink*
