Perhaps profound, but definitely not interesting
31 October 2013 | by (Estonia/Tallinn) – See all my reviews

If in every small "ordinary" populated place, where nothing virtually happens, a dead body is found, then it is a trigger, then it all starts to swarm, and successive occasions and people's reactions are usually interesting to follow. But in Magic Valley, corpse forms only a parallel/collateral event, much focus is placed on damaged pond and dull communication among the youth. All this is extremely protracted, there are long camera shots of nature, people talk petty stuff and the ending is dull, making just shrug your shoulders... As for the cast, apart from Scott Glenn, there is no one really memorable.

Narration has its place under the sun, but not on the screen in such a manner. Luckily, the movie is around 1 hour 20 minutes only, but all this could be more suitable for radio show or alternative stage play. However, if you worship Terence Malick, you might like Jaffie Zinn as well.
