The movie gets its name from the name of the town Uncertain, Texas. The population in Uncertain is 94 and getting smaller. As the sheriff says in the beginning about the town "you have to be lost to find it". The movie focuses on three guys representing three different generations. Henry is the 80 something fisherman who has lived there his whole life and has a strong connection to the lake. Wayne is a recovering drug addict that moved to Uncertain to start a new life. Then there is Zach who at 21 sees no future for himself in Uncertain and struggles with addictions and diabetes. The fourth character in the movie is Caddo Lake. The lake is one of the biggest sources of income for the town but it is being choked off by an invasive weed. So like the town it is uncertain how long the lake will be around.
Directors Ewan McNichol and Anna Sandilands do a great job of telling the men's stories while making it feel organic. They also filmed it beautifully. The movie looks fantastic especially the scenes of Henry on the lake and it gives it the Southern Gothic feel.
Overall: B+. The film look gorgeous and presented an engaging look at the lives of the three men. The only drawback of the cinema vérité style they used was the lack of a feeling of closure. They ended the movie and we are left with lots of questions. But still a great look at the small town life from these guys perspective.
