    No God, No Master has an authentic period feel. But Green is focused on so many historical figures and potential storylines that the film feels rushed and, at times, confusing.

    So much blandly sweeping, speechifying history and so little personalized dramatic focus turn No God, No Master into a series of issue-driven snapshots instead of something genuinely illuminating.

    The great David Strathairn can make any film watchable, but even he can’t save this dry dramatic thriller.

    It’s clunky, it’s hokey, it was clearly made on the cheap. It’s also ambitious in a way that more expensive films are rarely allowed to be anymore.

    Despite its occasional missteps, the film relates its important and sadly too-little-known story with skill and efficiency.

    Dignified to a fault and crammed with historical worthies (like a pre-deportation Emma Goldman), this dry tour of union hall strife and kitchen table sentiment wears its sympathies proudly.

    Green's historical diligence proves rewarding... But the movie, shot largely in Milwaukee in 2009, can still be dry.
