Dark Grimmy Psychological Thriller... a little too long
26 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Sam Rockwell is John Moon, a poacher living in poverty ridden backwoods. His father lost their family farm to the bank. His wife played by Kelly Reilly has left him taking their child with her. He is struggling to accept this.

Then one day on a hunt, he runs across a dead girl, an overturned truck, and a box full of money. He takes the money, and abandons the body. Except somebody comes looking for the money and knows John took it. It becomes psychological combat as the mysterious person try to force John to divulge where the money is.

The gritty grim of overwhelming poverty is well done. Everybody looks like they just did meth. However there are too many scenes of nothing happening as John Moon walks around hunting. It adds nothing that isn't already there. They are better off trimming those scenes to lessen the 2 hours running time and pick up the pace.
