Critic Reviews for Earthwork
"Earthwork" takes an unexpected swerve but one that adds layers of meaning and emotion to a film that is as beautiful and wrenching as it is unassuming.
Character actor John Hawkes, his rural demeanor tailor-made for hick pics, breaks through typecasting stereotypes in his nuanced portrayal of crop artist Stan Herd in Chris Ordal's ambitious Earthwork.
John Hawkes brings a laconic soulfulness to this ultra-low-key, only mildly involving tale of artistic pursuit.
Directed, written and produced by Chris Ordal, "Earthwork" is best left to TV.
Earthwork's narrative follows too-familiar templates, and its characters lack the careful detail of Herd's own art.
Imagine spending an afternoon watching a bunch of vagrants putter around on an abandoned city lot, and you've pretty much nailed the viewing experience of "Earthwork," a painfully dull account of a year in the life of the Kansas crop artist Stan Herd.
