Michael Vazquez’s review published on Letterboxd:
What Michael Sarnoski does here works. It’s great. It’s a quiet, moving, beautiful-looking (the cinematography was A+) & well-measured film. Nicolas Cage gives a wonderful reserved, quiet & subtle performance that’s one of his best of his career, my dude needs an Oscar nom. Alex Wolff who continues to solidify his status as one of the best young working actors today, provides great support, he and Cage have great chemistry as they play off each other very well. It’s a great movie about heartbreak, grief, loss, etc.
I can easily relate to Cage’s character a lot as well as many others with the exception of the “revenge” obviously and pig parts for me, mine was a dog, my special Risky who was a golden Retriever mixed Rottweiler and I still to this day, have my crying moments and still missing him. I still have photos of him saved in my camera roll on my iPhone for memories but I barely can look at him or else, i’ll break down. It hurts so bad, you know.
Anyways, I don’t want to turn this into a sob review. You have to check this one out, it’s a great one. It’s better if you go in blind with this one. As they say: the less you know, the better.
