  • Story, perhaps better known outside Canada for her stylistically distinctive work, has been compared to Errol Morris, but that's a tad unfair. She's a true original and this film is formidably rich in texture.

  • August 2017 was not the hottest on record. Not even close. If one can't get the title right, what chance is there of everything else falling into order?

  • No movie can encompass everything that's on the minds of Americans at the moment, but Story's modest but wide-ranging cine-essay comes closest, constructed in such a way that no two audiences will see it the same way.

  • This collection of interactions with ordinary people is a cinematic gift both simple and multilayered, an intellectual challenge and an emotional adventure.

  • While it never feels completely defeatist, [Story's] film offers scattered snapshots of an uncertain society in its dog days.
