I thought it was a very good bigfoot movie. hope there will be a sequel.

The suit used for the Sasquatch is the best suit I have ever seen for a movie.

A true gem!! As a film historian, I believe it often sad that little films such as this one often go completely unnoticed. This is solid piece of work, likely too quiet and atmospheric for most folks. Which is exactly what makes it perfect. Visually haunting, and aided by an impeccable score, Letters places the viewer in the vastness alongside Sarah Smith (Lily Rabe) - if only the viewer can let go of the world long enough to accompany on the journey. We are with Sarah for the whole of the film. Literally, the entire ride rests on Rabe's humble shoulders. Not many actors can invite us into their solitude and hold us there, but Rabe walks easily through the wilderness in comfortable silence, her emotions raw and tangible, dialogue unnecessary. I admit to being bias, as I adore Rabe, but also feel my critique is not unwarrented. Since purchasing the film, I've rewatched numerous times, taking something new and undiscovered with me each time. In an age where CGI, 3D, and special effects have taken over mainstream Hollywood, it is so utterly refreshing to sit down with this one and know that we are still capable of allowing ourselves, quite simply, to believe.

If you're interested in the Big Foot/Sasquatch legend on any level, or even if you just love the outdoors and nature, you will enjoy this unusual and well-directed movie. I was first drawn in by the haunting theme music (which repeats throughout the film), and then I was hooked by the minimalist cinematography, screenplay, and acting. (I can't tell you how many potentially-wonderful movies I've watched which were ruined by cheesy, unrealistic screenplays filled with unnecessary profanity.)

I LOVED Sarah's character - strong, funny, kind-hearted, and fearless. Her relationship with Sasquatch (the "Big Man") and her ability to hear his loving words of wisdom was very special and touching.

I do wish, like another reviewer, that there had been more left to the imagination about the actual Sasquatch/Big Man physical presence. Early in the movie and all of sudden, there he is! Up close and personal. Maybe if they had built it up a little more - giving us a "suggestion" of him and giving us a little more each scene. More "Hitch-cockian" as someone else wrote.

I also wish they had cast a different actor to play the wilderness advocate, Sean. At the risk of sounding snarky and superficial, that guy was a little rough on the eyes for me. Yikes! If I had to choose between Sasquatch and Sean...

Sorry.

Anyway, I highly recommend this lovely, haunting movie.

***Possible spoiler here!!!***

I'm curious as to what other viewers got from the ending. I know she was "chosen" to be able to see the Big Man and to have a special communication with him and with his kind. But in the final scene, is he waiting for her, whereupon they'll have some sort of friendship/kinship? Or will he just watch over her as he had throughout the movie? Any thoughts? Did anyone else get the feeling it was set up for a sequel?

I loved watching this movie. For anyone who has had experiences with sasquatch behaviors, this movie touched on many of the feelings that are experienced (including the range from fear to awe).

This was a great movie and well worth the money. I think it portrayed how I like to think of Bigfoot. I only hope they are able to stay hidden from us.

This really depicts what I know about Sasquatch and it's clear they did their research. Also shows how afraid people are to face the reality of it. Really makes me worry for them when the world is presented with irrefutable evidence; so many ethical questions about how we will get people to leave them alone! Then again, they have so many aspects of highly developed intelligence we don't have, I think these Ancient peoples will find a way to continue to live in peace. They don't need us, that's for sure! Man has so much hubris, not sure the majority of American people will ever accept that these people are "separate but equal," in fact, superior in many ways! A recent study just published revealed that something like three-quarters of Americans don't believe in Sasquatch. This is stunning, given the mountain of evidence. This movie is a great start in bridging the divide but of course, only those who are open and curious will watch it. Great scenery!

I recently purchased this from the director's website and was impressed with his ability to blend mainstream ideas with largely unacceptable concepts, such as Bigfoot being able to speak telepathically with us, appear and disappear at will, etc. In many people's minds, this Bigfoot phenomenon is nothing more than a hoax or a wild animal to be fearful of. There are however, a growing number of people who have changed their minds and now believe they are a forest people. These people have experienced a special sort of contact with these creatures and rather than stick with what they were taught about Bigfoot by those who have not experienced one, have come to realize the truth about them by way of their own personal experience(s). This film presents modern fears we have of them and conversely, the friendship more Americans are coming public about. It's a well balanced film in my opinion and presents a more realistic image of who the Sasquatch people are and that we can safely interact with them when we're ready. Recommend!
