"Vernon is a town in the Florida panhandle surrounded by swamps. Here, Errol Morris found the quietly fascinating subjects for the follow-up to his galvanizing debut, Gates of Heaven. As ever humane yet sharply focused, Morris lets his camera subjects pontificate and perambulate the environs of this seemingly unremarkable little community. The result is a strangely philosophical work that cemented its director’ standing as an important figure in American film."

Bad, but Honest reviews of my Instant Queue (111 movies items)

" Not much to say about this one, I know a lot of people like the characters in this one (being that I'm from Wisconsin, there's a weird connection between Wisconsin and Florida that I have noticed over the years) so putting a bunch of them in front of a camera telling their fish stories for 55 minutes with brief shots of scenery in between doesn't do much for me, the scenery is beautiful however, not sure who I'd recommend this one too."

" What is it about? It intersplices random chatter they captured on film of the genuinely eccentric residents of Vernon, Florida. A few examples? The preacher giving a sermon on the definition of the word "Therefore," and the obsessive turkey hunter who speaks reverentially of the "gobblers" he likes to track down and kill. (directed by Errol Morris, the best documentary director ever)"
