Critic Reviews for Hale County This Morning, This Evening

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

It's not every day that you witness a new cinematic language being born, but watching RaMell Ross's evocatively titled documentary Hale County, This Morning, This Evening qualifies.

This is Ross's method throughout Hale County-to capture and then assemble moments that seem as if they were all witnessed on-the-fly as opposed to contrived for effect, and let the finished product stand as both tapestry and testament.

The doc is more invested in mourners after a burial than in immediate reactions or big events. This is a story made of the in-between pieces of stories.

Hale Country works best in its quietest moments, when Ross allows his audience just to sit and engage with the subjects. When he zooms in, forcing us to take in one particular frame instead of everything around us, the poetry of the film is elevated.

Ross has a preternatural talent for capturing moments, souls and unorthodox time-lapses. Every shot seems to maximize the cinematographic potential of the scene through dexterous camerawork, while excellent sound collaging matches the scattered visuals.

January 24, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The routines most of us would write off as trivialities are, through Ross' eyes, made recognizable as individual pieces of a greater whole. "Hale County This Morning, This Evening" is humbly existential.
