Poetry. "Bill Luoma writes like an anchorman, not so much an 'insider' as a glider on the minimalist way of expressing being alive in groups with a purpose (the team). Once the purpose has been established, a tighter focus begins to take over, the love of women, or narrating Douglas, Bill's friend. Not since Bob Glück and Bruce Boone's camraderie in the 70s have there been such a literary buddy's movie as this. It's sketchy, and knowing and gleeful. Not since Thoreau has someone I know suggested that everything counts and then gone to work, wherever"—Eileen Myles.
