      Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune A mish-mash of familiar cinematic would-be jolts and shocks that don't convince for a more than a moment or two. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 25, 2006 Full Review Bill Stamets Chicago Sun-Times Cut with distractions: tweaky visuals, borrowed touches and cartoonish characters. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 25, 2006 Full Review Sam Adams Los Angeles Times Farnsworth's frenetic, often hysterical first feature tries desperately to find a style, or styles, to call its own, but there's never a moment that doesn't feel as if it's been chewed up and spit out a dozen times before. Rated: 1/5 Apr 13, 2006 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International This is just stylistic plagiarism, without any sense of self. Feb 6, 2007 Full Review Linda Cook Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) Here's a strange, moody movie about "Iowa" that's never going to make to a Chamber of Commerce dinner. Rated: 2/4 May 15, 2006 Full Review Mark Olsen L.A. Weekly As director, Farnsworth lets tricky visuals run roughshod over dramatic unity, while as a performer, his lack of screen presence makes him seem sullen and uninterested instead of darkly charismatic.

      Audience Member Disgustingly stupid. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Not nearly as bad as the reviews here indicate, but there wasn't a whole lot that made it good either. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member I wonder if anybody who watched this movie said Now that brings back memories?! If there ever was a movie on the reasons why you should not do Crystal Meth then Iowa is it.This movie scared the crap out of me & I think if they showed it in high schools or anywhere else across the country I'm pretty sure it would scare people into staying away from meth.This is the perfect Anti-Meth movie Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Spectacularly egregious in almost every aspect, this feels like a broke man's David Lynch crossed with some sort of right-wing proganda/hysteria on narcotics. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member I heart acid crotch! Iowa is the greatest, except for the sex parts. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Southern accents in Iowa? Really? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
