Anderson creates what may be the most vividly scary and authentic portrait of a sociopathic ex-con since Dustin Hoffman in Straight Time.
Set against the vivid backdrop of an Oklahoma oil town in the terminal stages of economic devastation, "Eye of God" is deliberately paced but almost entirely free of nonessential material.
A strange, dark movie that ruminates upon several weighty questions about faith and the existence of a Supreme Being ...
A film in which dreams seem to yearn toward a place where they can grow.
Moody, sympathetic and shot through with a sense of apprehension, "Eye of God" marks an impressive debut for writer-director Tim Blake Nelson.
''Eye of God'' is another small coup for Ms. Plimpton, whose uncanny ability to disappear into an assortment of thorny working-class characters comes close to matching Meryl Streep's in chameleonlike perfection.
...an overly complex narrative puzzle placed amid an atmospheric setting with distracting voice-over narration by Holbrook's town sheriff as he reflects on a tragedy that makes mute a local orphan...
Tim Blake Nelson shows promise and has captured the essense of a small rural town, but his point isn't defined clearly enough.
Offbeat and worthwhile
It's a shame that this strong cast had such weak material to play.
Unfolds with a flashback/flashforward razz-ma-tazz that doesn't quite disguise its predictability.
Impresses with its ambitious theme, complex structure, well-sustained tension and strong, heartfelt performances.
