“Arthouse fare nestled within the American heartland is, and probably always shall be, considered Terrence Malick’s territory. Hence early analogies drawn between Andrea Pallaoro’s excellent debut,Medeas, and the American maestro’s works, currently enjoying a period of serious creative vitality. But contrasting Pallaoro (or any perceived student of Malick’s style, from Shane Carruth to Leah Meyerhoff) with Malick does both the Italian-born Pallaoro and Medeas a disservice. Pallaoro is inclined toward the visceral rather than the ethereal. He has less use for poetics. He is, put simply, his own man.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
