Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

There’s a genre (literary, musical, cinematic) ambiguously called Americana. It has to do with evoking a rural medium, a small, isolated town or city (it includes It’s a Wonderful Life, The Last Picture Show and even The Straight Story) and, in a more metaphorical way, with appealing the primitive essence of the American through its common people and sense of community. This film is an updated celebration of the genre –it portrays a summer in the middle of Montana, which goes by outdoors and without any tragedies among car races, dips in the river, dances, fairs and small love stories that end up with abandoned women. Through the character of the urban poet that arrives in town, the film reflects its own contradiction: the distance between a cinema of scarce resources but that is part of a professional medium against the radical, archaic, idealized amateurism of the world it portrays. Tired Moonlight could be a much more patriotic film than American Sniper. Q
