A House on a Hill (2003)
Critic Reviews for A House on a Hill
Combines an intermittently lyrical soundtrack with a relentlessly theoretical visual style to fashion an amiable fable.
While it's clear that Workman is fascinated by the subject matter, that turns out to be the primary problem: He gets so wrapped up in creating the structure that he forgets to put much of anything inside.
Ultimately has a somewhat unfinished quality that complements the movie's themes -- and Hall's haunting performance.
The film is full of artists who seem to be straddling the line between compromise and conviction. There is much straddling in A House on a Hill, and not enough engagement.
Workman's autumnal character study may be the most sagacious cinematic dancing ever done about architecture.
