An engaging slice of Americana that almost manages to make back-breaking physical exertion look like a hell of a good time.

Sometimes the race is secondary, Baaden and Hume tell us in this beautifully shot and heartfelt doc about an annual team running event from Oregon's Mount Hood, past Portland and on to the ocean's edge.

Heartfelt and stylishly edited with picturesque scenery, but it's often redundant, underwhelming and neither suspenseful nor insightful enough to be truly inspirational or captivating.

Christoph Baaden, the director, loses sight of the fact that, for people who don't run, the cult of running is kind of boring.

An amateurish and unappealing documentary about participants in a 197-mile relay race.

Because the runners' standings in the race are never really established, and are largely beside the point, the film keeps cutting back to these increasingly sentimentalized accounts of hardship overcome.

I'd take raw shots of sweat dripping on pavement and heavy panting over slick graphics and guitar-strumming any day.

Expertly constructed, impressively lensed and surprisingly entertaining.

It's tears of joy and pain, 'Hood to Coast' captures Oregon.

What makes Hood to Coast special is the way it sort of perversely captures the entire human comedy -- it's pain and pleasure tied up in sleep-deprived logistics, and the punchline is that the suffering is completely voluntary.
