Noche de lobos Dirigida por Jeremy Saulnier
The tight, compressed, precise style of Blue Ruin and Green Room has been replaced by something more draggy and ambient. . . . Saulnier can do brooding (as in Blue Ruin) and brutal (as in Green Room), but he isn’t ready to get metaphysical, or the material for his first adaptation doesn’t suit him as much as it would seem.

Saulnier’s His visual flair remains the only consistently appealing part of “Hold the Dark,” a thriller that aspires to something deeper but never figures out what.

  • chanandre's rating of the film Noche de lobos

    [Netflix] Last 2018 movie.//This had serious Refn undertones. Saulnier's bleakest moment. I liked how the wolves spared him. Skarsgard is a hurt beast. That's how you deal with rape: you find the rapist, stab him violently then give the knive to her to finish the job and you walk away. If Native-Americans had had huh? No frontier men, no cowboys, no gold rush, no bio warfare, probably no America. soul-wrecker.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Noche de lobos

    **1/2. I wasn't at all convinced by the supposed excellence of Jeremy Saulnier's 'Blue Ruin' (2013). 'Hold the Dark' is a step towards the right direction though. The movie is a tense little B thriller with some mystical background. It has beautiful and worrying moments in a scenery of frozen forests. Violent though. Recommended to movie lovers.

  • MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Noche de lobos

    A remarkable genre mashup (western, folk horror, thriller, war movie) from one of America's most talented young director. I have not read the novel, but there is something McCarthian about the story, the characters, the inevitability of evil...

  • msmichel's rating of the film Noche de lobos

    Saulnier works on a much larger canvas here in this adaptation of the novel by William Giraldi and delivers a tense if muted thriller punctuated by moments of extreme violence. There is a certain otherworldliness to this slow moving slowburn of a film that flirts with a folklore bent but remains in the present reality and doesn't offer much narrative reward. James Badge Dale impresses here as the stoic sheriff.

  • Trevor Tillman's rating of the film Noche de lobos

    A leap forward in craftsmanship and maturity for the already promising Jeremy Saulnier. In no small part thanks to Netflix money, here the self-described "terrestrial director" handles more complex sequences, sprinkling in some aerial shots to boot. As somber and contemplative as its predecessor Green Room was anarchic and loud. Watch it on the largest screen possible, which sadly won't be your local movie theater.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Noche de lobos

    Green Room was a generic mess carried only by its colour, or cinematographic flair – I couldn't figure out the hype. Not sure I understand the hype here, either. Saulnier cobbles together "mood" by having characters whisper coarsely for 120 minutes - dragging out the simplest of conversations into sprawling nonsense. A bleak and mysterious tone at times, and some beautifully dreary cinematography, but a let down.

  • Jason's rating of the film Noche de lobos

    I find it fascinating that Saulnier would follow up two calculatedly crowd-pleasing genre exercises w/ this straight-up downer of Lovecraftian misery, which Netflix has seen fit to release unto the world just in time to coincide w/ the onset of seasonal depression. Brave? Not the word I would use. The film is unpleasant, even perhaps distasteful, and definitely super drab. Pretty sure it's about how God hates us all.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Noche de lobos

    A bewildering effort from the ever reliable Saulnier. What seems like a straight forward narrative twists and turns without much explanation or sense leaving the viewer lost at times. The weighty themes that simmers under surface are interesting but lacks conviction or clarity to really hit home. So while rich in mood and atmosphere it fails to elevate the characters beyond archetypes. An unfulfilling think piece.
