Movie Info

On June 4th, 2004, a sixty-three-ton bulldozer, fortified with steel and concrete, systematically destroyed numerous businesses and homes in the small mountain town of Granby, Colorado. The rampage lasted over two hours and resulted in more than eight million dollars in damage. State and local police were incapable of even slowing the machine. Though it was armed with three high-powered firearms, no one but the driver was killed. His name was Marvin Heemeyer. TREAD explores the polarizing perspectives on this man, his motives, and what drove him to the breaking point.

  • Tread's strongest suit is its complicated view of its subject's persecution complex - a self-righteous resentment that will be familiar to many viewers.

  • [D]irector Paul Solet felt the need to blanket the standard interview-and-archival footage format with dramatic reenactments... and repetitive slow motion that end up detracting from a story that was plenty sensational in its own right.

    February 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An absorbing documentary about a real-life rampage that often plays like the dark side of '70s rural revenge thrillers.

  • It all makes for an intriguing setup as we analyze each character and their personal versions of the truth.

    February 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • With a mournful compassion for everyone concerned, Solet delicately probes the fault lines ripped wide open that day by Marv and his bulldozer - whether those faults were there before, or his actions dug them.

    February 27, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Businesses destroyed, lives shaken to their core, the cars of bystanders crushed, cops helpless to stop it - it's awful and tragic, sure. But it's something to see, man.
