"All Mistakes Buried" is a feature film about a junkie's surreal journey through the Louisiana underground. Starring Sam Trammell, of 'True Blood' fame.
"But rather than tell its story in a strictly linear way, as an old (or mainstream) film might, "All Mistakes Buried" flashes back and forth through the hero's recent life in a prismatic fashion. The brilliant editing, by McCann and Chris Kursel, is reminiscent of arty 1960s and '70s films that applied the techniques of literary fiction to pulp thriller material." rogerebert.com, January '16
