thoughtful, well-crafted documentary
7 September 2010 | by sethrgrossmanSee all my reviews

This is a documentary to mull over. Director Edward Tyndall uses Medicine Mound, TX, to explore the nature of memory, regret, and slow obsolescence of rural America. Myna Potts has built a museum to her own memories of a town that has long since disappeared. In reviewing the museum's catalog, we tour Myna's youth, her friends, her acquaintances, and a past she's desperately trying to preserve, even as her memory fails her. Tyndall's observational approach to the subject, and his beautiful cinematography, combine to create a compelling work of art. As in his earlier short documentary, Deconfliction, Tyndall's work has a rare intelligence and restraint.
