It is refreshing to see a film where the director and the actors allow for a natural, human pace. Blake Brocksmith has written a deceptively simple story about two people meeting unexpectedly. Patrick Coleman Duncan, who wrote the screenplay and directs, is not afraid to let things develop between Terry J. Freedman and Brendan Weinhold and the actors don't let him or us down; they bring such a full truth to the situation that we truly feel like flies on the wall (or on one of the surrounding rocks, to be more accurate). Never turgid, the unfolding of the discovery between these two humans is nuanced and allows for the delightful, small bits of natural humor that are so often lost in hyper-fast-paced film making. Sam Rosenthal's cinematography is off-center, while retaining a clear tension and balance, and Will Oldham's original music complements the piece seamlessly.
