Masterpiece
13 December 2020 | by yusufpiskinSee all my reviews

I love Viggo Mortensen as an actor, and now as a director as well. The film is nuanced but not always an easy watch (slurs all around). The cast is truly excellent and Mortensen's poetic, meandering but still accessible directing style and score is exactly my cup of tea. and Lance Henriksen... amazing actor.
