Rich Hill is a very interesting documentary that gets its points acrossquite clearly. It deals with the subject of poverty and may be a harddocumentary to watch, but the film is quite well made, regardless ofhow depressing the subject and it never tries to downplay that aspect.<br><br>Rich Hill, focuses on the lives of three different teenagers, Andrew,Appachey, and Harley, who are living in the impoverished Midwesterntown of Rich Hill, Missouri, where filmmakers, who are also firstcousins, Tracy Droz Tragos and Andrew Droz Palermo&#x27;s grandparents andparents lived.<br><br>Andrew is an athletic kid who lives with his mother and a dreamingfather who sees no reason to keep a regular job, and takes drugs.Appachey is a chain smoker who lives in an out of control household,struggles with the authorities, and his need for freedom. While Harley,the oldest of three boys, lives with his grandmother, has a disorderconnected to his mother being in prison because assaulted his fatherwhile he was abusing their son.<br><br>What I liked about Rich Hill, was its approach. Instead of justfeaturing interviews with the three young men (which the film didfeature but only a few times), it also delved into their problems andbackstories. We got to see into their lives and really learn just howmessed up and pathetic things lives really are for them. In particular,Harley&#x27;s story was the most fascinating for me, as we saw himconstantly try to get out of school because of his personal problems,despite the fact that eventually after weeks and weeks of makingexcuses, if he did leave school again, he would be arrested.<br><br>Even if Rich Hill is a depressing documentary, it also does have a bitof the optimism. Both the ending and other parts imply that these youngmen could be getting better. There may be a glimmer of hope for them,and this makes Rich Hill, less one-sided than one might expect. Partsof this documentary are hard to watch because of its truthfulness, butat the same time, seeing Andrew smile at one point makes up for theoverall depressiveness.<br><br>Rich Hill is a documentary that some regular moviegoers might avoidbecause of its subject material. However once you get through theinitial idea and the first parts of the documentary, you may find thatit&#x27;s not as hard to watch as you think it is, aided by a strong musicalscore composed by Nathan Halpern. Rich Hill is a very fascinating lookat the values of family life and the struggles people live with dailyin an economically disadvantaged Midwestern small town. Rich Hill isnot easy to watch, but its headed in all the right places. Share this:

I grew up in a town very close to Rich Hill and I get this. It seemseasier to judge when the area is farther from where you live. There isa big problem with poverty in Missouri especially in rural areas wherejob options are limited and good education may be harder to obtain; myhome town also struggles with it but has some advantage in being closerto the jobs in Kansas City( if the car expense can be covered). Theserural areas really suffer when they are outside of public busingdistance to big city jobs as Rich Hill is and when too many factorieshave pulled out. Even my hometown is outside of busing limits so peoplehave to carpool or have very good working car and afford the gas to getto the job in Kansas City and live off it. Living in the city is nopicnic either as Kansas City rental rates are getting higher and higherfor rent and apartments can be quite scary compared to knowing everyonein your smaller town(I am experiencing that now as pay raises are notmatching inflation at all.) Yeah, I get this, insightful movie.

My wife and I both enjoyed this documentary, and we each felt prettylow after watching it. It was really well done, but it left a sourtaste for sure, like biting into your first unripened persimmon. I bothagree and disagree with the reviewer from Michigan. I think the pointabout this documentary not having a story arc is valid. There really isno growth in anyone in the film; they leave the film as they enteredit, some pathetic and lazy, some disturbed, some ever-hopeful. But Ithink as a documentary, the film is entitled to do that. Perhaps thatwas the filmmakers&#x27; objective: Life in rural, poverty-stricken Missouriis like an unripe persimmon. Here&#x27;s your bite. It sucks, and theunpleasant after-effects of that experience will linger for a longtime. I also agree that this leaves me wanting more. I&#x27;d love a KenBurns&#x27; style mega-doc that explores the how and the why of that sliceof life. Poverty is certainly a spoke on that wheel - perhaps even thehub- but it&#x27;s far from the only reason we felt so often disturbed bywhat we saw on the screen. Which leads me to my major disagreement withMichigan&#x27;s review, which to me was a belief that there weren&#x27;t manykids/families that could be that disturbed, lazy, dysfunctional, etc.,or that the film presented that dynamic in an incorrect proportion tothe reality. I spent twenty-plus years as a family therapist in atreatment center for severely emotionally disturbed kids and theirfamilies from rural and urban areas. They exist. Families and kids fallapart for multiple reasons. The families in this film had few optionsto help them deal with the ever- increasing severity of their problems.Poor people love their kids as much as rich people do; they just havefar fewer ways to access help when things start falling apart. Thejuvenile justice system should be the last resort. There&#x27;s no resourcesin these impoverished areas to help the more severe cases. But what Iwas really left with after watching this film was this: I know anotherreviewer requested this not be compared to Ferguson. I really want thecomparison. When you look at the underlying dynamics of a communitylike Rich Hill versus an inner city neighborhood, there are manysimilarities: poverty level; educational opportunities through publiceducation; strong family ties; mental illness; medical issues;unemployment and lack of available jobs. How are the impoverishedcitizens of Rich Hill exploited any less than any impoverishedinner-city resident? Are their reactions to their situations different?If so, why? I&#x27;d love to see a filmmaker explore that.
