Sometimes a Great Notion
April 1 - May 11, 2008 (extended)
Review by peanutduck
Brothers’ relationship, tangled with love, resentment, admiration, affects through well-structured dialogue interwoven with asides, choral accompaniment. Scenes with disgruntled logging community - The Six (among Portland’s best) – suffer from overly expository writing, static direction. Language, movement, lighting at times beautiful. Worth the hype? Still too uneven; another draft should tell.
