Description

In Bottom of the Lake, Christian Patterson takes an allusive view of his hometown, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, assembling pieces of a puzzle he never attempts to solve. Throughout, geographical details (snow-covered taverns, a deserted lakefront) are shuffled among images of pitted concrete, cinder-block walls, and nearly abstract expanses of wood grain and snow. Those taverns are the only suggestion of autobiography here; Patterson thanks “Wisconsin beer, Mom and Dad,” but seems less interested in his wasted youth (or remembered conviviality?) than the texture of a place that’s now mostly a state of mind. – Vince Aletti
