Hand-held indie Obfuscation
11 January 2016 | by samsamaellynchSee all my reviews

This isn't to say its an wonderful movie nor a waste piece of cinema which I don't believe it is, but somewhat it has such a discrete and breaking new ground sense of style that makes it stand apart. The style will surely scrape together comparisons to Terrence Malick way of filmmaking. Molly Herron and Jeff Young's haunting string-based score is another memorable plus in the film's favour, with the combination of the music and Ashley Connor's cinematography has the camera wandering from one place to another, change over perspectives and evokes bacchanal sense. Coming to the story, it takes place on a farm where Jeremiah (Robert Longstreet) and his teenage daughter Sarah (Sophie Traub) a child of nature nymph, albeit a warped one, have hired Akin (Joe Swanberg), to help out for Summer. What follows next forms the decisive point of the movie, the exact details of which shall remain unspoiled here. The film seems to be split in 2 segment. First half focuses on setting up the atmosphere, wherein the 2nd half is driven toward the plot.

Pros -

1. Runtime of just decent 94 Minutes. 2. 1st half of the Film. 3. Cinematography 4. Molly Herron and Jeff Young's Music.

Cons -

1. Movie lacks subtlety. I can say this could be the sole reason for the 7 rating.

Overall, Decker's experimentation of sexual tension in its dreadful form is as open to more interpretation and exciting terror.
