Joe Swanberg United States, 2011

Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film Silver Bullets

I have mixed feelings about l'oeuvre de Swanberg, but this is definitely one of his more interesting efforts, with some on-point self-interrogation and a very fine performance by Kate Lyn Sheil. Even the DFW interpolation at the beginning somehow isn't embarrassing. But I don't really care for Swanberg himself as an actor, and care even less for him when he's bathed in red light doing a Kubrick stare.
