Critic Reviews for The Driftless Area

All Critics (3) | Rotten (3)

  • Glaciers didn't go through this area, so there's no drift (silt, clay, sand, gravel, and boulders). So the area is therefore driftless. That's very interesting. To geologists.

  • A self-consciously quirky, slightly otherworldly tale whose eagerness to win audiences over with whimsy only succeeds at keeping us at arm's length.

  • "The Driftless Area" isn't so much bad as it is trivial and forgettable, but in a day and age of dwindling cinemagoers, and interest in adult storytelling fading from the big screen, its weary insignificance feels all the more criminal.
