  • It's an incredibly cunning mystery with a charming cast of characters who ultimately crack under the pressure of keeping up with their appearances.

  • It is really singular and unique and cool and strange and very ambitious.

    March 27, 2020 | Rating: 8.2/10 | Full Review…
  • I thought it had a very vivid sense of place... It has some smart dialogue and some very offbeat characters.

    March 21, 2020 | Full Review…
  • "Blow the Man Down" creates a well-realized world with layers that keep revealing themselves. You don't want to live there, but it's well worth a visit.

    March 20, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • In its own gentle but sure-eyed way, this movie cuts deliciously deep.

    March 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Which is fine, because the movie's pretty great - not quite "Fargo" with lobsters but close enough, and about as good as regional filmmaking gets.
