The author is from the Pacific Northwest and the stories take place there but I believe the film takes place in Montana.

Cool, thanks.

Edit: Just took a look at the Stewart segment again, and of course right at the beginning there's a big map of Montana in the background. That makes me feel a little foolish.

What was this shot on? Something about the way this film was shot was very distracting to my eyes. It was almost like I was watching a tv with the 120hz setting still on. Does anyone know if this was shot an unusual frame rate or something?

16mm. She conducted digital test shoots but didn't like the look so reverted to 16mm.

That shouldn't do it. That is so weird. I wonder if something was wrong with my disc.

The land seems as much a main character here as anyone else with the grass, mountains, and small town malls Reichardt evokes something really specific that with even, and only, the slightest change of scenery would make a radically different film. It feels to me like eastern Washington, but I could also see western PA or some place like that.
If anyone is interested here is where they shot specifically. Living where I do I can tell you that they shot within a little over an hour of my home. There are acutually spoiler there so be careful.

Montana geographically ranges from very mountainous to very flat and can do so very quickly and shooting a film here is a very deliberate choice because we don't offer tax credits (An absolutely dumb as shit decision.). But because there aren't a ton of people living here compared to other states you'll find we get a lot of second unit shooting done here particularly near Bozeman. They even shot some footage for one of the Narnia films here!

Hello forum

I am having a very strange experience watching this blu-ray (uk edition). The image looks terrible in motion. If I freeze, the image looks quite good, grainy and detailed, but in motion everything looks waxy and there is a constant problem with what I guess is usually called "mooring" (but I may be dead wrong on that). I actually found myself getting slightly sea-sick after some 15 min, and no doubt it was caused by the strange image properties.

Anyone else has this experience, or could this be a faulty disc/batch of discs? Thanks!
Just watched this and it has the same white noise problem as outlined in this thread

Thank you for pointing this out. Upon reflection I realized that we see both the Laura Dern and Lily Gladstone characters' relationships with their dogs.

Is there also a dog in the Michelle Williams section? I can't recall.
Not sure this really qualifies as a spoiler but

Yes, one of the guests at the cookout where Michelle Williams grills up burgers feeds their serving to a dog
Question re: swo's reading

What is the evidence that the husband is cheating?
