Monuments | Film

A grieving widower travels cross-country in a stolen pick-up truck, determined to scatter his wife’s ashes in Chicago.

An amalgamation of quirky humor and genuine heart … subdued and proudly awkward comedy.”
Film Threat, Andrew Stover
“(A) wonderfully weird, decidedly offbeat gem. … Monuments is at times grounded, at times almost hallucinogenic — and always smart and entertaining.”
Chicago Sun-Times, Richard Roeper
“As with any road movie, Newell’s fourth feature unfolds in episodes and interludes, but a non-chronological structure and David Burkart’s disruptive, gonzo editing keep things pacy and constantly refreshed.”
Variety, Jessica Kiang
