So, this film was included as an extra on the Blu-Ray of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. It’s director David Lowery’s first feature film. And I just want to tell you that it is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. It follows a brother and sister who are homeless and just sort of wandering about, trying to sustain themselves by staying in abandoned homes, shoplifting food and those kinds of things. And, yeah, that’s really it. There’s almost no dialogue in the film, almost no music and the film is just composed of these incredibly slow, incredibly long takes of the kids, like, coloring or trying to light a match or eating a piece of cake. This was less than an hour and a half but it felt like an eternity. Payoff? None. We never find out why the kids ran away from home even. I mean, I’m all for formless, plotless, experimental, languid films, but this one just ******* will not quit. This one does show that Lowery is starting to develop his eye for beautiful shots that he shows off to great effect in Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. But that movie had, you know, interesting characters, a beautifully written script and astonishing performances. This one . . . has two kids wandering around in a field for ten minutes at a stretch. God, this was brutal. Awful movie. Strongly warned against. ½ star.
tl;dr – couple of kids wander around Texas in this almost entirely dialogue free, interminable, awful movie. Don’t ever, ever, ever, ever try to watch this garbage. ½ star.
