  • In Salvage, director Amy C. Elliott ... plunges knee-deep in refuse and emerges with a highly entertaining, informative, briskly paced and quite profound documentary.

  • Elliott captures it all with humor and respect for her subjects. The townspeople don't come off as inbred hillbillies, rather they make very intelligent arguments as to why this pastime is so important.
