Critic Reviews for Iowa
A mish-mash of familiar cinematic would-be jolts and shocks that don't convince for a more than a moment or two.
Cut with distractions: tweaky visuals, borrowed touches and cartoonish characters.
Farnsworth's frenetic, often hysterical first feature tries desperately to find a style, or styles, to call its own, but there's never a moment that doesn't feel as if it's been chewed up and spit out a dozen times before.
As director, Farnsworth lets tricky visuals run roughshod over dramatic unity, while as a performer, his lack of screen presence makes him seem sullen and uninterested instead of darkly charismatic.
There's not much story but there are plenty of colorful, almost David Lynchian drug freakouts.
Audience Reviews for Iowa
Not nearly as bad as the reviews here indicate, but there wasn't a whole lot that made it good either.
I wonder if anybody who watched this movie said Now that brings back memories?! If there ever was a movie on the reasons why you should not do Crystal Meth then Iowa is it.This movie scared the crap out of me & I think if they showed it in high schools or anywhere else across the country I'm pretty sure it would scare people into staying away from meth.This is the perfect Anti-Meth movie
A creepy view on meth heads in my home state Iowa, but for christ's sake since when do we have southern accents?!? LOL hollywood failing as usual like in The Crazies
