“Burke, an emergent director in Chicago, does not yet have a deep bench of work. But if you go and see “Bitter Earth,” you’ll intuit his visual sophistication and his facility for sculpting his actors; there is more interesting direction going on here than you see in the work of other, far louder, directors. It’s impressive: there’s attention paid to the emotional honesty of the work, and yet also to the richness of the storytelling.”
