It's an incredibly cunning mystery with a charming cast of characters who ultimately crack under the pressure of keeping up with their appearances.

It is really singular and unique and cool and strange and very ambitious.

March 26, 2020 | Rating: 8.2/10 | Full Review…

I thought it had a very vivid sense of place... It has some smart dialogue and some very offbeat characters.

"Blow the Man Down" creates a well-realized world with layers that keep revealing themselves. You don't want to live there, but it's well worth a visit.

March 20, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

In its own gentle but sure-eyed way, this movie cuts deliciously deep.

March 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Which is fine, because the movie's pretty great - not quite "Fargo" with lobsters but close enough, and about as good as regional filmmaking gets.
