MEEK'S CUTOFF

Michelle Williams stars in this tale of pioneer struggles in territory unknown. "Directed from Jon Raymond's fact-based script, this suggestively allegorical, discreetly trippy Western recalls Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man and even Werner Herzog's Aguirre: The Wrath of God in its evocation of frontier surrealism and manifest destiny madness...” - J. Hoberman, VILLAGE VOICE/LA WEEKLY

MEEK'S CUTOFF
2010, Oscilloscope Pictures, 104 min, USA, Dir: Kelly Reichardt

Shot in the Academy ratio with stark, spare elegance, director Kelly Reichardt's slow-burn tone poem following a group of lost pioneers in the barren desert of 1845 Oregon is enigmatic frontier cinema at its best. The stellar cast includes Michelle Williams as bonneted, tough-as-nails wagoner Emily Tetherow, Rod Rondeaux as the silently impassive native man encountered and then captured by the group, and Bruce Greenwood as scruffy, McCabe-like blowhard Stephen Meek, whose disastrous trail misguiding is either plainly incompetent or purely malicious. With Zoe Kazan, Paul Dano, Shirley Henderson and Will Patton. "A bracingly original foray into territory that remains, in every sense, unsettled." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
