Winter Continues

Reverse Shot staff writers have always been divided over Michael Winterbottom and his career trajectory: hard to pinpoint, yet to some easy to dismiss, while to others provocatively diverse. In fact, rarely has a director better exemplified the wide-ranging, plurality-of-voice ethos we strive for at Reverse Shot. From The Claim to In This World to 9 Songs to Tristram Shandy, recently mentioned in our Mid-Year 2006 2006 Round-Up, Winterbottom has certainly prvoked passionately differing responses. Check out our latest indieWIRE review, of The Road to Gunatanamo from RS staffers Nick Pinkerton, Kristi Mitsuda, and Lauren Kaminsky, in which the question Winterbottom (and in this case, his blurring of documentary and narrative modes) is wrestled with yet again.
