A powerful, swooning visualization of a wilderness childhood.
It has a slender, appealing story, moments of agonizing suspense, vivid atmosphere and superlative photography.
Flaherty's narrative may seem slightly naive; but his vision of a child's myth-world, and the oilmen's intrusion and acceptance into it, is perhaps his greatest achievement.
The ring of sincerity is clear in Flaherty's film.
It's a solid but tedious industrial film showing the risks and rewards of getting oil out of the ground.
As adept as it is in photographing nature, Louisiana Story is weak in capturing culture.
One of all time best, and one of earliest, documentaries; with Robert Flaherty's deft style.
...it's the virtuosic craftsmanship that makes Louisiana Story a genre classic.
Louisiana Story may be Flaherty's greatest work.
That Robert J. Flaherty managed to make a fascinating movie that also subtly chastises the massive oil interests (using their money to do it) is one for the record books.
It displays many of Flaherty's great strengths as a filmmaker, but it also showcases some of his weaknesses, which makes it an uneven film that is not in league with his earlier works.
Dated, but it looks great.
