87!?! I guess you can't expect film critics to be good photography critics. This film should be renamed close encounters of the worst kind.

This film should be renamed close encounters of the worst kind. The artist tips his hat to Edward Hopper and David Lynch yes yes, but noticeably Jeff Wall goes unmentioned, maybe because acknowledging this would be admitting that his techniques are as derivative as his content.

After you look beyond the tired and the cheesy surrealist gambits all you will find here is a super-sized serving of poverty porn, processing and straight jacket-ing its underclass subjects into a romanticize catatonic state. The overlong film does succeed in proving that brief encounters are the best kind when it comes to these photos.
