A Moody Mid-Western Film
1 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Reminds me a lot of another moody mid-west film called 'Kansas' with Matt Dillion & Andrew McCarthy. The wide shots of the fields and silos show how remote this particular location is from either of the coasts and is very effective in setting the mood of isolation that prevails in the characters - not because these are bad people, but because, as one character says: "this isn't the kind of place you just LEAVE." Once you've made your bed in a small Iowa town, everyone knows where you're sleeping.

And then there are the trains shooting through the film - a reminder that there is a world out there larger than this one.

The film shows how the characters want to connect to another human being in hopes of relieving this loneliness, and having something to look forward to. The sheriff wants to become the mayor. His wife waits beside a remote farm field for her lover, her ray of hope. His son huffs from a plastic baggie, hoping to feel something - or numb the things he does feel.

Interesting choice of cars for this film - as if the town hadn't updated it's police fleet since 1988.

I gave it 7 out of 10.
