Critic Reviews for Songs My Brothers Taught Me
A moseying tour of life on the Lakota reservation, circa right now: the empty beauty of the badlands, the ancient struggle with alcohol, and the persistent push of youth to make good and make sense of a bad old world that somehow keeps hope alive.
The cast, composed almost entirely of first-time performers, shows that the most delightful talents don't always belong to lifelong actors.
The slow-paced film includes all the expected social themes - drinking, poverty, broken families. Where Zhao excels is in the range of emotions she gets from a mostly nonprofessional cast.
An earnest, smartly mounted film about life on a present-day reservation.
Viewers will be torn between admiring its laid-back naturalism and wishing it possessed just a little more oomph.
Because her laissez-faire approach makes little effort to fit the fragmentary scenes into a tidy portrait of reservation life, "Songs My Brothers Taught Me" feels more authentic than if she had chosen to impose a tighter structure.
