Critic Reviews

  1. 38
    There's not much story but there are plenty of colorful, almost David Lynchian drug freakouts, as well as lots of sick violence.
  2. A flashy-looking low-budget indie about drugs, love and crime in small-town Iowa. But, speaking as an ex-small-town Midwesterner, I found it hard to buy.
  3. Reviewed by: Mark Olsen
    Just because the filmmakers have their roots in the Midwest doesn't give them a pass when it comes to their stereotypical rendition of small-town people and ways, chock-a-block with sadistic cops, shotgun-toting locals, and strippers from up in Des Moines.
  4. 30
    Farnsworth's frenetic, often hysterical first feature tries desperately to find a style, or styles, to call its own, but there's never a moment that doesn't feel as if it's been chewed up and spit out a dozen times before.
  5. 30
    Underneath the wrapping lies a squalid Tarantino-style crime flick.
  6. A story of miserable people leading miserable lives, Iowa is a sour vanity project: trash posing as a socially relevant "cautionary tale."
