5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece August 26, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Superb film. Powerful, atmospheric and moody. All the acting is skillful and convincing and the suspense builds to a very dark and fatalistic ending. In fact for those who know the great E.C. horror comics of the 1950s you will recognize a very similar type of ending to what they were famous for. The director is one of the best independent film makers working today in my opinion and has two excellent films already to his credit before he did this. I find it amusing that people who like absolute garbage can knock this film. I understand if this is not liked because the subject is rather relentlessly dark but this is an adult film with serious intent. In a film world populated by torture porn, vulgar comedies, and comic book heroes at least give due consideration to a director who tries to rise above that muck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best movie I've seen in a long time. September 5, 2013

Certain people are going to love this movie. Certain people are going to hate it. If you really enjoyed Transformers, stay away because there are no Transformers in this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next Rosenthal flick October 11, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Simple Plan meets Winter's bone. If you like one or both of those movies you will like this one. Sam Rockwell is totally believable. I empathized with him and rooted for him. I loved this whole cast and the writing was good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Done! September 19, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I can't imagine going wrong with Sam Rockwell and William H. Macy. The director was spot on also. The pace was poignant... it started a bit slow... but that was the intent. By midway through, my eyes were wide open to see what would happen. Thank you for doing your part (movie makers) to preserve human artistic integrity.

"I'm gonna find you." John Moon (Rockwell) is trying everything he can to reconnect with his wife and child. Spending his time between living in his cabin and trying to fit in in town. When he finds a young woman in the woods his life takes a dangerous turn and now he must not only fight to get back with the woman he loves but also for his life. I watched this movie for really only one reason, Sam Rockwell. After watching it I have to say there is really only one reason to watch this, Sam Rockwell. To me he is one of the most underrated actors alive (Paul Giamatti & Giovanni Ribisi would also be on list) and he again shows why in this movie. If anyone but him was the lead in this it would be unwatchable. The movie itself is so slow moving that I found it hard to stay interested in but he brought a depth to the character that really helped and made you want to see him succeed in everything he was doing. Other then that though this is just really to slow moving to recommend. Overall, a movie to watch to see the brilliance of Sam Rockwell. I give it a C+.

Because all of those middle American hicks have got nothing better to do with themselves but to either (A) hunt or (B) sit back and watch the paint dry. Ain’t one of ‘em who’s got a respectable job. Ain’t one of ‘em showers regularly. Ain’t one of ‘em would ever vote for a Democrat. Why, even that form of English they speak? That ain’t English! Well, it ain’t English like you and I speak! They may as well be from some Third World country, what with their morals, their values, and their clinging to Constitutional respectability! It’s enough to make a Progressive write a novel, pen a screenplay, and release it to the masses for their consumption!

Is it any wonder that these films don’t make a respectable buck anymore? According to IMDB, this one didn’t even get anywhere near six digits. Maybe there’s a lesson worth putting on film, no?

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

On the surface, John Moon (played by the reliable Sam Rockwell) hasn’t got much to live for. His wife’s left him. She’s taken his son along when she checked out. He’s holed up in a trailer between a rock and nowhere. No job. A beat-up old truck. In fact, all he has is his guns and his hunting. One day – while out trying to poach a deer in order to have something to eat – he fires into a cluster of greenery and accidentally shoots a fashion model. (True story.

1.0 out of 5 stars More like A Single S*** April 20, 2014
By Holly
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Way too long to develop a story with characters that have no real baring on the plot at all. Seemed as if the director had no idea which way to take this movie and thus there is never a real clear climax. Ending scene could have saved this movie and made the entire grueling task of watching, worth it but it too dropped the ball completely. The story line was what sparked interest and acting was tolerable-which keeps you watching but script is lacking, maybe subtitles would have been helpful to understand what the characters were saying. Very strong accent with most words mumbled. Southern drawl is one thing but this was difficult to understand. Don't waste your time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Single Shot Indie film
Gloomy but very realistic viewpoint. Rockwell makes acting seem as though it is real life. Disappointing ending but it is what it is. Such a hopeless character.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price
This was a pretty good film. Worth the money. I prefer Winter's Bone, to which this is similar in look and feel, but that's probably more a personal issue. Read more
