Audience Reviews for God's Country
"God's Country" is an engaging documentary wherein Louis Malle takes a genially respectful look at the small town lives and work of those in Glencoe, Mn, especially the one guy who inseminates cows for a living. In general, he is concerned with how such a homogenous community could exist in such a diverse country as the United States in 1979, with the wounds of the Vietnam War having just healed. To do so, Malle tries to get under the well-manicured lawns with him becoming obsessed with that most American of activies, lawn mowing. And then he returns five years later, to see how much their lives have changed and not changed in differing political circumstances, while also making special note of how much their kids have grown.
