Review: Mud (2013)

There’s much to be said for wallowing in MUD, director Jeff Nichols’s leisurely yet captivating follow up to his 2011 drama TAKE SHELTER. This Southern Gothic spin on WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND is a gently absorbing tale of adolescence gone awry, and boasts a beautifully judged performance by Matthew McConaughey, currently on something of a roll. A clutch of strong supporting performances and a satisfying pay-off make this one of the most purely enjoyable films of the year so far.
