I should point out that one character that makes the biggest impact is the landscape itself.

[Off the Map] takes time to breathe, to savor the present and not get bogged down in all the little things that often dominate our attention.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Off the Map ... is a movie you soak in and examine, like a painting in an art gallery. You study its shades and lines so you can appreciate the work as a whole.

Quiet and quirky, yet refreshingly unpretentious, Off the Map is a welcome sojourn in a place that seems strange, yet entirely familiar.

...eloquently written but not overwritten, with a story that ultimately feels less like a literary construct and more like a spontaneous celebration of a few lived lives...

A poetically rugged demonstration of these hypotheses, in which nature and human nature are shown to be variations of the same thing.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

The stunning, almost scarily beautiful New Mexico landscape plays such a pivotal role that it ought to be listed in the credits right below Sam Elliott's name.

Despite some florid narration it is quietly spoken, humorous, quick with sympathy.

It's supposed to invite you in, and it does, with eccentric characters, soft stories and a sense of spare solidity that feels more true than precious.
