    The imagery has all the solemn ravishment of Béla Tarr's similarly darkening "The Turin Horse" with none of the epochal portentousness, while Rivers's work owes more to Billy Bitzer than most gallery art contemporaries.

    Mileage will vary from viewer to viewer as to whether this singularly eccentric movie is ultimately illuminating or enervating.

    The stillness and silence with which we look upon Jake Williams ranges from curious to unnerving to fascinating.

    It’s technically a doc, but neither Rivers nor his inscrutable subject is interested in backstory.
