Some New Trailer For The Order of Myths
New Review For Movie The Order of MythsA well-constructed documentary about a surprising remnant of segregation in the new South, The Order of Myths gracefully explores Mobile's Mardi Gras celebrations and profiles the young people playing at royalty at these ceremonies' hearts.
Dan Kois-Washington Post
An invaluable portrait of us-and-them America, a smart, generous, poignant, quietly disturbing movie about secrecy and hospitality.
Robert Abele-Los Angeles Times
On both sides of the Mobile Mardi Gras divide, people seem to be edging toward a desire for reconciliation, but there remain significant differences about what that might entail.
Wise and soberly affecting documentary about the separate but unequal Mardi Gras festivities that take place each year in Mobile, Ala.
Manohla Dargis-New York Times
This microcosmic look at race relations is a great reminder that, even in the year of Obama, we remain a nation divided between black and white.
David Fear-Time Out New York
To say each group takes this tradition seriously can in no way convey the absolute nuttiness and frenzy that filmmaker Margaret Brown has captured.
Sara Vilkomerson-New York Observer
Mobile and its still-segregated Mardi Gras tradition seem to be world unto themselves, presented without reference to the wider world's pressing issues--the failing economy, environmental concerns, war in Iraq. The documentary's impressive compilation of
Reveals ceremonies that are exotic, unexpected, colorful and incredibly ritualized, layered with vast amounts of denial, submerged agendas and hypocrisy.
Robert Roten-Laramie Movie Scope
Separate but equal is alive and well in America; see how it works at Mardi Gras in Mobile
Marty Mapes-Movie Habit
A good time is had by all even in light of public displays of racial segregation in the Mobile, Alabama's Mardi Gras celebration.
Ron Wilkinson-Monsters and Critics
An informative behind-the-scenes look at America's oldest Mardi Gras.
Dennis Schwartz-Ozus' World Movie Reviews
[An] affectingly insightful and well-informed documentary. Myths taps into a special kind of Southern tradition%u2014with underlying racial overtones as a societal hovering factor.
Frank Ochieng-Movie Eye
A revealing anthropological portrait and reminder of American places where young people grow up surrounded by tradition, both positive and negative, and stay to carry it on.
Nora Lee Mandel-Film-Forward.com
Trapped under the weight of hundreds of years of racial animosity and mistrust, with few clues as to how to work themselves free, the celebrants of the oldest Mardi Gras in the country take refuge in their traditions.
Josh Rosenblatt-Austin Chronicle
[A] beautifully restrained, intelligent documentary about how complicated race relations can be in the modern South.
Entertaining and provocative.
Noel Murray-AV Club
Brown presents a complex, provocative view ...
Andy Klein-Los Angeles CityBeat
Less a vitriolic critique than a considerate, despairing depiction of the intractable sway exerted by long-held, unpleasant traditions.
Ostensibly about Mobile, Alabama's annual Mardi Gras tradition, which dates back to 1703, Margaret Brown's documentary is actually an examination of the racial divide in a city that claims there is none.
Maitland McDonagh-TV Guide's Movie Guide
The cast of characters trailed by the crew is a compelling batch.
Matthew Nestel-Boxoffice Magazine
Engrossing if discomfiting.
David Noh-Film Journal International
