My daddy used to say, you wanna catch a killer, you go to the funeral. Look for anyone there who shouldn't be, that's your man. Nobody here today though, except Jonas. Hey Jonas, you kill this guy?

I haven't read the other reviews. I guess they're not great. But there's a lot going on in this movie that's probably lost on most.
I found it to be a powerful character study where each actor faces a moral dilemma. It moves along the line slowly, thoughtfully, deliberately.
The notions of ontology, of faith, of redemption, and of truth are just a few of the concepts pulled into the story.
I get it's not for everyone, but there's a lot to find if you look for it.
