Immortal Cupboard

Immortal Cupboard

Director:Cathy Cook
Release Date:2009

By Bret McCabe | Posted 2/4/2009

Cathy Cook's mesmerizing, impressionistic biopic about 20th-century Wisconsin poet Lorine Niedecker is a musical visual poem all its own. Niedecker (1903-1970) spent most of her life living alone in rural Wisconsin, with her brain poured into books, all her sense attuned to the world around her, and her mind crafting shortly, gorgeous realized poetry about a place. An excellent marriage of form and subject.
