This is actually a largely quiet, compelling chronicle of a man's discovery of the horrors going on not far from his own backyard, and Sayles has written, directed and edited the piece in his usual calm and understated style.

[Sayles'] vision remains clearly articulated at every level, whether you approach the film in terms of its narrative structure, its philosophical foundation, or its characterizations.

The ending is a revelation. Don't mind the subtitles, they work.
