Beautiful, Eerie and Compelling
3 June 2013 | by Matthew WendlandSee all my reviews

I will not attempt to have perceived the intent of the writer and director of Magic Valley, but will interject that I found it to be beautiful, eerie and compelling.

I grew up in the "Magic Valley" in southern Idaho but have lived in the Seattle metro for years now. As a native to the region, I found that this film had captured the subtle beautify that dwells there, while still representing the begrudgingly passive culture that has developed in the communities.

I am amazed at how such a simple story can carry so much weight and can draw me in so deeply. Undoubtedly I will need to watch this film many more times to satisfy the questions that have come to mind by partaking the first.

It's not often that I've seen independent films of this quality produced by someone so new to the industry. Magic Valley is the only film Jaffe Zinn is credited to have written and directed yet he has produced something beautiful. It is no wonder that a veteran like Scott Glenn and newcomer Johnny Lewis were attacked to this script.

Magic Valley - You will haunt my mind with questions and draw me back countless times.
