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.

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 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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars SMALL TOWN, MANY INTERESTS March 20, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
John Moon (Sam Rockwell) is a bad poacher, having been caught three times. He can keep a job, in fact he has kept many of them. He is also not the most careful hunter as he irresponsibly and accidentally shoots a woman (Lana Giacose). As any good citizen, he robs her and hides the body. In fact she has a whole box full of money. Our protagonist is not the nicest person in the world.

A couple other things that John is not good at are relationships and hiding money. His wife (Kelly Reilly) wants a divorce as John consults the town's most inexpensive attorney (William Macy) whose judgement in suits and hair pieces leads one to believe he doesn't know how to use a mirror. As it turns out the dead girl had a boyfriend (Ted Levine) who knows John has his money and he wants it back.

It is difficult to hide things in a small town as the plot develops some minor complexity. The good, the bad, and the ugly of this film is the fact that it captures the rural flavor of the community with local euphemisms, accents, and slow motion talking. Depending on one's viewpoint, this can make or break the movie. John Moon, is well meaning when it comes to his family, but he is not all good and far from the brightest bulb in the pack.

A redneck art film. Not for everyone.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Amy Sloan).

I will not give this away in case you have yet to see it. It is one of the best low-action movies I have seen in a while. Sam Rockwell plays the part well and the story never gets mired in peripheral meanderings. I really loved it. Great for date night or just having a brewsky and popacorn!

4.0 out of 5 stars Moody and Atmospheric Thriller that has its moments. October 8, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
John Moon (Sam Rockwell) is a man who has let things slide. His marriage is on the rocks, he lives in a sort of trailer, he has no job and his daddy lost the family farm - a farm he still believes is his. One day whilst out poaching, sorry, I mean hunting he accidentally shoots a beautiful young woman. Instead of doing the right thing and going to the law, an establishment to which he is no stranger, he decides to hide the body and then search the camp she had come from. In doing so, he comes across a pile of cash - and nicks the lot.

He then goes to the most low rent lawyer in town to fight his divorce and get his family back. This lawyer is William H. Macy as Pitt in a role to die for, with a wardrobe that would liven up any seventies party and a hairpiece that you could write a thesis about. He plays the slime ball perfectly in what for me was no way near enough screen time. Well then things go all nasty when the guys who originally stole the money come wanting it back and they are far from being reasonable. Then the fun and games begin.

Now this is a good movie but it should have been a great one. I am a big fan of Rockwell as he starred in `Gentleman Broncos' which I will forever extol the virtues of. He is a good actor and Macy never fails to impress. But this has been in production since 2009 and many actors have signed up and then walked away, including Michael Fassbender, Alessandro Nivola, Forest Whitaker and Juliette Lewis, so there have been `production issues' as they say in industry lingo. The screenplay was adapted by Mathew F. Jones from his book and the episodic narrative can be seen in terms of chapters. However, there is a lot of mean guy mumbling, which means you can miss some of the dialogue which is a bit poor.

"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+.
