[Cause of death: third act.] The score kinda drowned the available emotions. The Walking Dead initial premise with Carruth's echoes was very interesting. That plot point was kind of lame. Dinklage's eyes have size. altitude. depth. width. He should do more movies. Batteries and unread books: all that you can leave behind. Dragging corpses over rocky soil wrapped in kids' comforters and Gyver tape Korine-style: dope.
Digital. 0. The crap that much of contemporary cinema became, formatted by TV series formal premises. From the images flou (see the pic above) to the horrible soundtrack (and its application - another one ...), everything here is installed in the territory of an oversized inexpressiveness, wanting to be.
This whole thing hangs off the weighty screen presence of Peter Dinklage and the fearless cinematography. Unfortunately, the story is paper thin, the score strives for heavy emotion where there is none, all the while trying to re-create the sense of dread and inner turmoil so convincingly delivered in Morano's first episodes of Handmaids Tale. Also, ever tried dragging a person on a tarp with one hand?? 2.5 stars
