  • Director Gus Van Sant finds the human side of a knotty issue. No polemics. Just the face of a new America in crisis. show more

  • Promised Land is a fine place to start appreciating Matt Damon, who always makes it seem as if everybody else is acting and he's just going through the movie being natural. show more

  • There's also reason to worry when a simplistic movie like this one takes on an issue of overarching importance to the nation's future. The challenges presented by fracking are immense, and Capra-esque nostalgia isn't helpful. show more

    A very entertaining and thought provoking film that protrays the difficult ethical and moral struggles citizens in Anywhere, US must face when the landman comes to town. Many will be able to relate to such struggles. Well worth seeing again!
