Mesmerising and poetic tale of two brothers tasked with burying their mother in the rural south. Evocative and hauntingly filmed. It's so languid as to be occasionally nonexistent, but it's consistently enthralling.
This is the way movies should be made, with true attention to details. I can watch this a hundred times, and get a new experience every time, and probably - be no closer to fully understanding it completely.
The down-tempo pace and relatively dry plot, forces the attention towards the transcendental conflicts happening in the film. The emphasis is not placed as heavily on the journey of the two brothers, specifically Corbet's character, rather on the relation of their journey to the world that surrounds them. At the end, Griffin asks us to question if free-will is actually in the hands of man, or nature.
