Critic Reviews for Memphis
Even those who find it a bore will agree it's a pleasure to look at, and not only because Beal cleans up nicely as a suit-wearing slacker in a snappy chapeaux.
The film feels like a sketch rather than a portrait, beautifully rendered but incomplete in the details.
The film is less than 80 minutes and if you cut the shots that go on too long it would be less than an hour.
Tim Sutton's second feature, starring the young contemporary musician Willis Earl Beal as a musician with the same name, captures the mood of the blues with pitch-perfect sensuality.
"Memphis" is a gorgeous, gorgeous movie-the kind that prompts critics to say "every frame could be a painting"-but it is also proof that the woozy, opaque mode of American independent filmmaking has its limits.
