Two Minute Movie Review: Uncertain (2017)

Uncertain (2017)

The other night, while looking at the new streaming releases on Rotten Tomatoes (a great source for something to watch), I came across a documentary called Uncertain. Here’s my one two-minute review.

Title: Uncertain
Directors: Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandilands

Genre: Documentary

Why I watched it:
It had really good reviews, and was 100% fresh.  Plus, I wanted to see how a town of 94 compares to the metropolis of Burton, TX, with a massive population of 300.

Interesting fact:
Uncertain got its name because the original surveyors were’s sure if it was in Texas or Louisiana.

I’ve watched some terrible movies lately.  I was due for a good one, and this was it.  Great character study of some interesting people living on the edge of Texas and the edge of society.  It’s sad, in a way, and hopeful in a way.  Like life.

Something I liked about it:
Mr. Ed, the hog with the horse’s head, though I support the killing of feral hogs, by any means necessary.  Wayne is an interesting dude, who seems remorseful about his past.  Henry reminds me of a number of men I knew growing up.  Zack’s theology and views on waffles are both spot-on.

Something I didn’t like about it:
That Salvinia, which is destroying Caddo Lake.  Duckweed is a pain in the ass in my ponds; I can’t imagine how hard it would be to deal with Salvinia in an entire lake.  40 square miles in 3 months!

Rating: ★★★★

Wally’s take:
He slept through it. Like a dummy.
