Early Word On Shotgun Stories

Shotgun Stories is broadly in the category of what we sniggering urbanites used to call ‘deadbeat regionalism’ (before the indie movement was kicked into the mainstream by Quentin Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein),” writes New York’s David Edelstein. “But the sensibility here is more subversive, more attuned to the South’s subliminal violence. Adam Stone’s wide-screen cinematography captures the heat and the corrosive moisture, the lush green of the cotton fields and the rust of the pickup trucks, the natural beauty juxtaposed with the unnatural human debris…. Shotgun Stories has a flawless cast, but it’s the peculiarity of Michael Shannon that keeps it from becoming too obvious.”
