      Audience Member Loved it. Every frame. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/16/19 Full Review Audience Member Exceptional movie that shows the working relations with oil field hands and the money that backs the venture. Money makes people do strange things. Love, lust, deceptions and greed will be found in this movie. Great depiction of what the west Texas oil is all about. A must see. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/03/19 Full Review Audience Member Thoughtful independent film based on a novel of the same name reminds us of the history of wildcatting in Texas. Authentic Peroid details set in West Texas , directed with a sensitivity for the men and women who lived for the power of black gold . Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/03/19 Full Review Audience Member I also saw this at the Dallas International Film Festival. It was terrible, and a few other things bad but I won’t say anything else. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/24/18 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Kimber Myers Los Angeles Times Though there are some well-framed shots from cinematographer Mathieu Plainfossé, the script from Gerry De Leon and director Ty Roberts is lifeless, covered in a layer of dust that the cast can't rouse it from. Mar 1, 2019 Full Review Matthew Monagle Austin Chronicle What it lacks is a distinct perspective; for all its period details and solid acting, the underlying message about this time in Texas oil history - that it was right, that it was wrong, that it was necessary - is lacking. Rated: 3/5 Feb 28, 2019 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Seemingly nostalgic for a period when West Texas roughnecks settled scores with baseball bats and laid pipe with pickaxes, this lovingly made homage to avarice feels strangely limp. Instead of gushing, it trickles. Feb 28, 2019 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy If writer-director Ty Roberts doesn't exactly hit pay dirt, neither does he leave viewers completely empty-handed. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 27, 2019 Full Review Daniel Eagan Film Legacy Thin but likable account of an oil wildcatter's rise and fall. Strong production values help offset cast and script issues. Jul 23, 2019 Full Review Dominic Griffin Spectrum Culture A curious soap opera that nobody outside of Texas will give a [crap] about. Rated: 1.5/5 Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
