Movie Info

13 vignettes look at a country lost in a haze of post-catastrophic neurosis. From the PR handlers scouring the redwood forest for the perfect spot for a presidential photo op to the gay teenage son of a right-wing politician to the hurricane that brought so many of vastly different backgrounds together (albeit too briefly), the question of what has become of "The Land of the Free" is asked.

More damaging is the fact that no narrative momentum ever emerges, and overhanging the whole thing is a penumbra of left-liberal apocalyptic thinking that isn't terribly interesting.

With a few notable exceptions, pic relies on O. Henry-esque twists, simplistic surprise endings and "aha!" epiphanies to gets its points across.

Despite [director] Tec's worthy intentions, the movie is a mixed bag that seems outdated in its failure to take on the most distressing legacy of the Bush years: the global economic collapse.

The performances are across-the-board solid (most of the cast is theater-based).

March 20, 2009 | Rating: 3/5

This collage ... all too frequently succumbs to moralistic clichés, and never coheres into a rousing, affecting whole.

All of Roland Tec's miniportraits highlight the snake oil hucksterism and manufactured fear that still beset America.
