The result may not be quite as distinctive an inquiry into Southern subcultures as her 2009 stunner "The Order of Myths," but this SXSW grand jury prizewinner nevertheless stands as a uniquely thought-provoking chronicle of an event that, in the absence of any real preventive action taken by oil companies or the U.S. government, calls out for further cinematic and journalistic attention.
