    ‘JAYHAWKERS’ MOVIE DEPICTS MIX OF SPORT, SUFFERING, JAZZ
    By Andrew Hoskins
    “The opening scenes of any indie film, especially one produced in the Midwest, are typically a time of uncertainty for an audience. Questions arise: Are these scenes telling of rest of the film’s ambience? I’ve never heard of any of these actors, so is this movie credible at all? Is this thing even worth finishing? As “Jayhawkers” opens with some obviously artificial dialogue and a low-budget feel, these fears begin to twist in your stomach. It’s tempting to write off the film at this point — about 10 minutes in — but as the film’s aura takes shape, it slowly turns from a good film into a great film, then into a mesmerizing piece of Kansan art.”
