News & Interviews for Main Street
Critic Reviews for Main Street
With diorama staging and repetitive medium and long shots, stage director turned moviemaker John Doyle creates rigor mortis on film.
Like a small firecracker that turns out to be a dud..as dead as the city it depicts..Durham ought to sue for libel.
Main Street is an ensemble drama that functions as a display case for a range of regional drawls, from the authentic to absurd.
Audience Reviews for Main Street
With a cast like the one this film has and a script based on a Horton Foote story it should have much better than the dull pointless mess that this one is.
Great cast....not so great script. I kept waiting for the meaning of it all. It never came. What a waste of some great talents. Not terrible, but definitely forgettable.
The film took me by surprise. From the trailer, I wasn't expecting much. However, after watching the film, I was pleasantly surprised by it. It is really good. I don't understand why it didn't get more publicity when it came out. The film kind of, in a weird way, reminded me of the movie Magnolia. I felt like I have seen this type of film before. It is well directed and great dialog in it. The film is well casted and everyone shines. I definitely recommend this film.
