News & Interviews for Dixieland
Critic Reviews for Dixieland
An archetypal story made compelling by honest performances but undone by its docu-fiction style.... Bedford shirked the responsibility of building out authenticity within the film's narrative world.
Writer-director Hank Bedford's Mississippi-set romantic drama would have benefited from judicious tightening and a rethink of its uninspired, decidedly downbeat crime element.
This is well-worn territory, and though the two leads are very good, the romance that is supposed to drive the story isn't particularly well delineated ...
Chris Zylka and Riley Keough ignite a convincing spark as lovers who dream of wider horizons. Even so, their fateful course unwinds less than persuasively, the vivid sense of place not enough to bring the one-last-heist setup fully to life.
Bedford intercuts the narrative by interviewing actual residents of the town where he shot the film; all of their stories touch on death more movingly than the fictional script does.
