Tots entertainment


CFN

Gazette staff
If Terrence Malick’s movies are anything, they’re an absolute pleasure to look at. In such films as Badlands, The Thin Red Line and The Tree of Life, the acclaimed director, who was raised in northern Oklahoma, has demonstrated a gift for extracting beauty from the most unexpected places (i.e. cornfields, combat zones, um ... dinosaurs).

August: Osage County

Set and shot in Oklahoma, August: Osage County loses its darkly comic teeth on the way to the silver screen. Now, it simply bites.


Drama

August: Osage County is the worst kind of Oscar bait: unearned. Seemingly hoping to join the race by pedigree alone, the Oklahoma-set family drama is as patently false as a plastic worm concealing the business end of a fishing hook. At a glance, it looks like the real deal, but look closer. See, kids? All for show!
