Produced with the help of David Gordon Green, Shotgun Stories has all the markings of a first film in all of the best ways. Director Jeff Nichols’ slow Southern tragedy about two tightlipped sets of feuding half-brothers is sure to draw easy comparisons to Green’s work, but this film is far more quiet, foregoing Green’s artier affectations for stone-faced simplicity. The results are artfully executed, and seemingly free of the burdens of expectation--a confident first outing that feels deliberately modest in its ambitions.
