Saw it last night. Simple, almost hackneyed “man versus nature” story (which I’m a sucker for, and such stories are always also “man versus himself”), but done really well. Spare and unsparing. Easily my favorite new movie of 2019 so far.
Like “Longmire” meets Wind River meets Lonesome Dove? Could be something. The music here — a bit more pressing than your usual Western fare — piques my interest the most. I’m in for at least the first episode.
Saw it last night. Liked it a lot. More than I thought I would. Did a little Twitter thread about it.
I really liked HOSTILES. Another example of how a simple genre plot — viz., a prisoner transfer — allows for the exploration of weighty ideas. Malick-esque at times, and not just because it marks the first pairing of Christian Bale and Q’orianka Kilche since THE NEW WORLD.
