Fantastic
19 December 2020 | by eddiesavitzSee all my reviews

The acting was excellent. The slow burn I thought was a wonderful pedal tone adding support to the broader narrative about a family living off-the-grid - no tv, no phone, no music, no electricity - time moves slowly and is punctuated by the ebb and flow and ups and downs of the day's work. The wolf served as a nice addition that transforms the wilderness into this dark backdrop (although they almost overdid the family's fear... it's just a wolf... and the municipal workers act to temper this fear).

Some silly attention-to-detail gaffes: the revolver used by the man towards the end is positioned to show the barrel and it looks to be a pellet gun. Also, the viewer gets a sense of where things are directionally from the homestead. The river, the crime scene, the road,... and people just seem to come from all angles when coming to and from these places.

Excellent movie, great acting, and super ending. Some of the criticism leveled against the ending could also be leveled against Tarantino re Hollywood, no?
