Lovely poetic flowing vignettes of life, with clear influences
11 February 2019 | by narikinSee all my reviews

This film, with its flowing vignettes of life in Hale County has been praised to the skies by various critics, and in many ways deserves it. Sadly all of them have missed its indebtedness to 'A Shimmer of Possibility', a hugely influential photographic work/ book released by Paul Graham in 2008. It pioneered the free-form visual poetics, into what Graham called 'visual haiku's', by recording everyday Americans going about quotidian life, and finding beauty in the most ordinary of situations.

Mr Ross, clearly knows this work - he is an art-photographer and teacher himself - and Mr Graham's work was highly praised, and even given a solo show at MoMA, NYC. RaMell Ross has absorbed the lessons from this work, and transferred them to his film-making, with great skill. The success is his, and I don't wish to take away from it, but it is important to acknowledge a debt and clear influence, when it is due.
