The moment you start watching Puritan you are sucked into a journey of cinematic style and intelligence.
Its patient with you and never lets you know too much, just enough to keep you watching and intrigued.
Film noir plots are things we are all used to, but the possibility of variations and manipulation in these plot lines are infinite, that is why they are so satisfying and watchable, and these variations are completely fulfilled in Puritan with an assured confidence.
I particularly admired the minimalist approach to framing and coverage. Only what is needed is shown and used, a very brave thing to attempt as it could have backfired, but in this case it succeeds in a film that is gratifying in its simplicity.
