Praise for the use of “In A Big Country” in LAND HO!
“One of my favorite side effects of going to a film festival is getting a song from a movie lodged in my head. This year at Sundance, that honor goes to “In a Big Country” from the modestly charming Land Ho! Now, that chorus just makes me think of Paul Eenhoorn.”–Tim Grierson (film and music critic for Screen International, Deadspin, Paste and Playboy) http://timgrierson.blogspot.com/2014/01/big-country-in-big-country.html
“They make excellent use of both original synth-pop music and Big Country’s “In a Big Country.” It’s a song you’ve heard a thousand times but that here seems newly profound: “Pull up your head off the floor / Come up screaming / Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted.” The camera never fails to consider the scenery, so that even Mitch’s bigness is unceasingly dwarfed by landscape. The camaraderie has a sense of cosmically topographical wonder. Lava fields, hot springs, mountains: They’ll be there long after these two are gone. That, of course, is Mitch’s point: Live now. And, mercifully, he makes it without anyone having to announce that they’re dying. This, to me, is quintessential Sundance: a tiny movie that comes from nowhere and makes your day, your week, and possibly your year.”–Wesley Morris, Grantland http://grantland.com/hollywood-prospectus/sundance-diary-days-5-6-the-happiest-movie-youll-see-all-week-and-the-most-ridiculous/
