Roman: [stuck in the ice] Tell me another joke.
Lucy: I don't have another fucking joke. The joke is if you don't get your ass out of there, I'm gonna come down and kick it. How's that for a fucking joke?
Roman: I like the bear joke better!

confused magic hallucination
7 October 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Lucy (Tatiana Maslany) and Roman (Dane DeHaan) are a young couple living in a remote Canadian arctic outpost. Roman talks to a bear. They go out on a snowmobile trip. Stuff happens.

I love the two leads and they have an intriguing chemistry. At first, I figured the bear is a hallucination. It's almost an hour in and both of them see the bear but only Roman can hear him which suggests that he's not hallucinating the bear. It's magical or delusional. Then the movie gets disjointed and there is a confused flow. Then it's all a hallucination which is kind of a relief. Then I start to wonder when the hallucinating started and I'm back to confused. I want to like this for the actors but I can't really follow this movie.
