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.

There's something interesting here at the core of the conflict, but the story is offered so little room to breathe, coming across rushed and undercooked.

This disappointingly suffers from some uninspired direction and a clutch of odd casting choices, which never work.

An unreleased movie is like a kind of commodity, one whose value goes up and down depending on the vagaries of circumstance.

While Main Street does have its merits, the production (which ironically experienced its own share of financial hardships before and after shooting) feels ever so slightly unfinished.
