Critic Reviews for Troublesome Creek: A Midwestern
The images of the land... exert a nostalgic tug for a Norman Rockwell dream of which this family, in better days, seemed to have found a piece.
Anybody with a feeling for the rural Midwest will find this visually engaging documentary a bittersweet reminder of how family farming, once a pillar of American life, is slowly vanishing.
A deeply personal docu about the loss of a farm, the film premiered at Sudance Film Festival where it won major awards. Amazingly similar in plot and events to the Jessica Lange farm feature Country, it deseved serious Oscar considerations.
And on and on it goes until we're just about ready to give up corn if only so they don't make any more movies like this.
Alternately heartwarming and heart-wrenching, rich with understated humor and warmth, punctuated with priceless glimpses inside the human condition, Troublesome Creek is a powerful film despite its familiar theme.
