User Reviews

scattered but rewarding
6 April 2017 | by tsimshotsuiSee all my reviews

66/100 Empire of Dirt has scattered narratives and lack of control that is not unusual with stories and perspectives that rarely get explored and told. It's a case of trying to include too many things because one rarely gets the chance to. Among its problems are certain threads that were under-explored and a confusing time jump, but the subject matter and issues definitely make it more than worth the effort. Jennifer Podemski is especially excellent as Minnie. She had this incredible presence and extreme believability.
