Critic Reviews for Burning Cane
Youmans, who was 17 while making the film, presents not only an advanced visual language and style for his age but a striking emotional nuance in the portrayal of his characters...
This film feels like a grown man coming back and trying to understand his childhood. This [director] was 17!... It's deeply astonishing.
Even when the images edge toward the self-consciously authorial... there's always something to latch onto... "Burning Cane" also gets us excited about what else Youmans can do.
Youmans... depicts these harrowing emotional crises in dramatic fragments and shadow-drenched, often oblique images; they suggest his anguish at a legacy of male frustration, violence, rage, and self-destruction...
The people in Youmans' film complicate a simple plot summary by presenting more than one face to the world, and to the camera.
