Relentlessly downbeat desert survival film ............
23 December 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Creatively photographed, emphasizing the beauty and inhospitable hopelessness of the Mexican desert, "A Savage Hunger" is a brutal fight for survival film. Nine survivors of a plane crash set off across the desert, when hope of rescue fades. As the situation deteriorates, stealing water, murder, and eventually cannibalism, reduce the group to four. Some relief is offered by an abandoned well at an old mining camp, but impending starvation forces a confrontation based on who will be next? The outcome is in doubt until the very end, and the final panoramic shot is amazing. My only criticism would be a lack of character development, however the fascinating downward spiral of ethics is enough to recommend "A Savage Hunger". - MERK
