Ain't Them Bodies Saints 
Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints
2.5/4 stars

This is director David Lowery's full-length feature directing debut, and while I was left rather unsatisfied, I can say I look forward to his future work because the man can clearly do some wonderful things with the camera artistically. Ain't Them Bodies Saints has some very good moments - its opening sequence, in particular, being strong and rather exhilarating. But the film eventually loses its grasp with the audience once the pretty thin plot fleshes out into something that is ultimately conventional and lazy. It lacks the hefty emotional core it wishes to develop and sustain. Essentially, it's a film that has much to offer visually and stylistically, but substantially it lacks heft - resulting in a film that isn't bad, but not necessarily memorable.

2.5/4
