Travis Wilkerson returns to economically depressed Butte, Montana—the site of his 2002 documentary An Injury to One—for this feature. Shot with several different video cameras, it has a textured, hodgepodge look that reflects the messy lives of its three main characters: a young dishwasher (Barrett Miller), his best friend (Dylan Wilkerson), and their guitar-picking father figure (Charlie Parr). The men smoke, drink, and bemoan the state of Butte since the mines closed 20 years earlier, and though many of their observations show their knee-jerk leftism, there are also a number of raw, unpredictable moments. The music, performed by all three actors, enhances the melancholy tone, especially Miller's soulful rendition of “Joe Hill.” 82 min.
