Critic Reviews for The Illinois Parables
This accomplished essay film may focus on our state, but Stratman's real concern is state power in the larger sense...Connecting all this are sweeping aerial shots that capture the beauty of the plains without obscuring the blood spilled to claim them.
Stratman often juxtaposes static, serene landscape footage with an increasingly agitated soundtrack, arriving at an odd consonance amid so much dissonance.
A meditation on history and landscape, it has the power both to soothe complicated feelings about America and to inflame them.
Thematically linked experimental documentary "suite" uses strong resonant images, with some re-enactments, to show how the land and prairie landscape don't forget the past.
