The film follows a mountain man on the run from authorities who survives the winter by breaking into empty vacation homes. He's haunted by a recurring dream of being lost at sea and constantly has flashbacks of his former life of a family man.

Jonah tells the stranger that all the hotel's rooms are non-smoking, and that he has to have a credit card to book a room. In the mid-1990s, when the film is set, most hotels (especially in small towns) still had both smoking and non-smoking rooms. Also at that time, most smaller hotels would accept cash without a credit card. See more »
I watched this movie not knowing what I was getting into at all. I had seen the trailer and I mainly just decided to watch it because I stumbled upon it and seeing Rami Malek as the lead made me excited.
First of all I was very intrigued by the cinematography and the minimalistic setup of the otherwise pretty complex plot. I found the balance between the 3 timelines working very well with the flow of the film. I was surprised when I had to pause at one point and realized I was already half through, feeling like I had only just started it!
It uses the same kinds of twists as seen before in works like The Matrix, Fight Club and American Psycho and Malek's performance is fairly parallel to what is seen in another of his leads, in Mr Robot. I do, however, think that these parallels work in favor of the movie.
It also comes with Biblical parallels which I found very interesting. Where I think it faulted was when it at times became a bit too obvious for me. I would have liked it to be a little more subtle with the Bible references which is mainly what docked it from a perfect score for me.
