For the filmmakers, who wins or loses means little. The ongoing ritual of small-town American life is all.

What makes 45365 special is its eye for the infinite diversity within a superficially monotonous pattern.

The first shot tells us "45365 is the zip code of the town." In this achingly beautiful film, that zip code belongs to Sidney, Ohio, a handsome town of about 20,000 residents.

Directors Turner Ross and Bill Ross IV, brothers and native sons of Sidney, find poetry in images of the mundane.

Strange, disorienting and unexpectedly affectionate.

A graceful, affectionate yet clear-eyed portrait of daily Middle America small-town life in which no individuals are interviewed but instead are observed with detachment as they go about their lives.

45365 doesn't quite satisfy, with many of its through lines feeling just a bit off.
