this movie yesterday. I'm not quite sure what to think of it. It is not your standard Hollywood thriller. We have a little black girl, an alcoholic father, a missing mother, an impoverished alcoholic community living right at water level in Southern Louisiana. Storm comes, water level rises, things get wet. When you look at the basic facts of the story, there's not much of interest, but then that's just the bare bones. There's a lot more to it. It's a story about people, and people are complicated.
There was one thing I did not understand. There is a shack with a a bunch of sticks sticking out of the roof, very much like the picture above, except that in the movie both sides of the roof were decorated with these sticks. It sort of looks like the sticks were picked up by the wind and thrown at the house and they stuck there. Except the sticks are perpendicular to the roof, and not parallel to the ground, which might be okay, except that they are the same on both sides of the roof, which means the sticks on the two sides of the roof are perpendicular to each other, and there are no sticks decorating the siding of the house, so maybe they aren't wind blown debris, but someone put them there deliberately, which would be a crazy kind of thing to do, but then this is movie is a little crazy anyway, so maybe that's what happened.
