Critic Reviews for General Orders No. 9
Persons' short quasi-documentary doesn't offer specific solutions to toxic modernity, but the film itself is a temporary fix for fallen spirits.
An intimate, meticulously crafted meditation on the impact of civilization on the natural and spiritual landscape of the American South.
"General Orders No. 9" is a tone poem laid over 72 minutes' worth of images, many of them lovely, and is, as its press material says, "unlike any film you have ever seen."
The type of film that demands viewers to submerge themselves in it like a pool of water -- anything less, and it will seem hopelessly abstract.
General Orders No. 9 strains for elegiac profundity and ends up as bad, backward-looking poetry.
Audience Reviews for General Orders No. 9
Great film, that has rightfully won a lot of awards on the festival circuit. Beautiful, mesmerizing and a wholly different film than any you'll see anytime this year, in the best way possible.
Rambling, self-important, pseudo-spiritual documentary on the state of Georgia that plays out like a narrated slideshow. Some beautiful images are quickly swallowed up by its aimless, repetitive nature, and it never establishes a clear focus.
