  • What makes Middle of Nowhere a break-even proposition, rather than something to avoid, is that it deals with an aspect of life and with characters rarely seen in movies. show more

  • Nothing is easily resolved in this complex drama, which makes it all the more honestly moving. More than anything, this is a film about a woman on a journey of self-discovery, finding her way gingerly. show more

  • DuVernay, a low-key director sparing in her use of emotion and music, has made an existential drama that is European in its feel. show more
