4 stars out of 5 -- "Hammer's script is spare and pertinent, without a wasted syllable, giving his characters believable voices against the bleak and gray canvas of the Delta farmlands, stunningly photographed by Lol Crawley."Box Office "[An] austerely elegant, emotionally unadorned riff on life and death in the Mississippi Delta....It's a serious achievement and a welcome sign of an newly invigorated American independent cinema."New York Times "BALLAST has images of pristine spareness that keep leaping forward....As the movie comes into focus, you feel the lives of the characters echoing backward through time." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "In Lance Hammer's BALLAST, the director takes a page from the Terrence Malick playbook and constructs a poetic narrative out of bleak landscapes and majestic drama....The result is an exhilarating narrative."Premiere "BALLAST has the heft and substance its name implies....this austere, rigorous film has a sense of place, a feeling for reality so compelling it makes us feel like we're living it, not just watching on a screen."Los Angeles Times "The film has a bedrock reality that could not be fabricated. It was filmed on locations in the Mississippi Delta, and uses actors who had never acted before, but who never step wrong. Few professional actors could convince us so deeply."Chicago Sun-Times20.97882
