Marrow is a psychological drama about ordinary horror.
…visually resonant and emotionally rich…Wilkins is at his best churning up the volatile emotional space in scenes that rise and fall unexpectedly and authentically.
Inspired moviemaking… genius… …a flashback-driven family drama enlivened by strange, sometimes spooky supernatural and psychological elements.
Marrow is thick with tension, most of it suggested in enigmatic flashbacks that hint at a family legacy of anger and violence… the drama rising and falling with the volatility of real life rather than in a neat theatrical arc. Marrow’s unsettling authenticity of untidy lives and frayed emotions is remarkable.
Matt Wilkins makes movies the way a cheironomer makes music, or the way Kennedy plots against Castro: He assembles assemblies, describes contours and nurtures key plot points… You could almost say his film company doesn’t even make movies — they make processes.
