Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Rains, Ms. Leo and Mr. Franco are all so interesting that you wish they had more to bite into. But the film has a transfixing quality nonetheless. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Dec 8, 2016

Fresh: A droll ostensible mystery whose investigation (let alone resolution) takes a back seat to the revealing eccentricities of characters and communities encountered en route. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Apr 17, 2016

Rotten: The movie - at first scrappy and strange but an increasingly tough sit as it goes - never fixes its gaze on any singularly compelling idea. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Dec 6, 2016

Rotten: For a film that warns against believing in a mirage, Burn Country seems all too comfortable perpetuating one. – Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine, Dec 4, 2016

An Indie gem

One for the collection.

I wouldn't

Sure, I’m an action movie guy….but I take adventurous treks into the movie world. I feel I wasted my time on this one. The antagonist was weak and ambiguous at times. I still don’t really know what the theme of the movie was. There was a degree of mystery, but only that worthy of a C movie. The acting was acceptable and good in most cases. If they were going to make the California hill crowd out to be freaks…I think it would have been better if they would have actually turned that up a bit and make it a real freaky movie with some great surprises. As it as, the “surprises” were actually a bit of a let down for me.
