Rod Dreher writes of Laura Dunn's film:
It does not disappoint. The texture of the film is rich, the tone poetic. In fact, it feels less like a documentary than a visual poem. Dunn and Sewell do in film what Wendell Berry does with poetry. I can’t wait to watch it again, and am thrilled to think of how The Seer will be received around the country. The film is in part a portrait of Berry, but more an exploration of his prophetic vision of America and its land. If Terrence Malick had made a documentary about Wendell Berry, it would look and feel a lot like this one. In fact, Malick is a friend of the directors, and an executive producer (with Robert Redford) of The Seer, but the work is all the young couple’s. I bring Malick’s name into it to give you a sense of the high aesthetic level at which Dunn and Sewell are working in this film. It’s simply a gorgeous, gorgeous movie.
