Critic Reviews for Monrovia, Indiana
Like all of Wiseman's films, "Monrovia, Indiana" possesses almost meditative power.
As usual, Wiseman's scenes extend for long stretches, which can be an acquired taste for some viewers. Yet this time around, he ends his film with one of the most shattering sequences of his career...
Given enough time, Wiseman would conceivably want to make documentaries about everything. That's amazing. What's even more amazing: If anyone could actually do it, it's Wiseman
The result is surprisingly companionable and enjoyable, an unhurried look at a location that is in no kind of rush, a place that is concerned most of all with preserving the way it's always been.
These are lovely images, but they leave a disturbing aftertaste. The final take away from Monrovia, Indiana, is that the town is a great place to be an inanimate object.
