Eve's Bayou

2 years, 4 months ago at Sep 17 20:44
Eve’s Bayou is a delicious little treat of Southern Gothic madness involving a family’s journey through one twisted summer. Actress turned writer/director Kasi Lemmons gives the entire film the aura of a folktale, and with the help of cinematography Amy Vincent renders the entire story and setting as an ambiguous and mysterious.

Eve's Bayou

“Eve’s Bayou is a delicious little treat of Southern Gothic madness involving a family’s journey through one twisted summer. Actress turned writer/director Kasi Lemmons gives the entire film the aura of a folktale, and with the help of cinematography Amy Vincent renders the entire story and setting as an ambiguous and mysterious. That Eve’s Bayou is narrated from the titular character’s older self gives a stronger impact to the film-as-folktale since a child’s eyes cannot and do not completely understand the adult world.

We’re told through this narration that Eve gets her name from a freed slave descendant who was given the lands, and sixteen children, that her family currently lives in. They are a wealthy upper-middle class black family in a small town in Louisiana. T” read more

"Debbi Morgan Midway through the picture, Morgan, playing Aunt Mozelle Batiste Delacroix (a white magic voodoo priestess), reaches a sort of transcendence as an actress as she has a vision that we feel we can believe and trust in since she relays it to us in such a powerfully intoxicating way. She travels effortlessly between the world of the dead and the world of the living. As she passionately recounts her legend of being a “black widow” to her young niece, years of heartache play out on he"
