Exceptionally well done suspense mystery that absolutely nails the gritty backwoods redneck handle-things-yourself lifestyle in poverty stricken West Virginia. Sam Rockwell puts in a masterful performance as the quiet man of the woods that wastes not one word that needn't be said, and never once considers calling the law to handle the horrific things that happen to him. He's betrayed and harassed due to circumstances that are largely out of his control and displays an inner grit that is authentic and mesmerizing. Highly recommended.

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.

One of Sam Rockwell's best performances. Goes on the shelf next to Winter's Bone, another 5-star film in the style of country noir. These are hard stories about a part of America that seems very real, yet so removed from our urban and suburban ways of life as to be almost surreal. I can't get over how the writers and directors find such sensitivity and tenderness in the midst of the harshness that permeates these rural lives. So well done, every word and action seems spontaneous. Quality throughout.

I am not a fan of gritty movies but am a HUGE fan of Sam Rockwell and will watch anything he plays in. In spite of the gritty nature of this film, the story was powerful. I generally avoid violent and gruesome films and was tempted to turn it off a few times but sympathized with Sam Rockwell's character so much that I had to see how things turned out for him. I'm going to watch it again now because I had a hard time understanding some of what was said. Not sure why that is. The accents maybe? The writer and director were masters of tension and that is, after all, what we all love about stories. If you're sensitive, you might find some scenes difficult to watch but if you love STORY, you'll love this movie.

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.

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.

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.

It's too bad there isn't a two 1/2. The murky photography is subtle for the suspense being built from that 'single shot'. Sam Rockwell is, as almost always-excellent. A surprising entrance as a bad guy--Jason Isaacs (now we know where he went after the great series 'Brotherhood' ended :-)
It's clear Rockwell is still mourning the loss of his father's farm being foreclosed , his marriage is ending, his two year old son doesn't seem comforted being with his father the one time we see him after interrupting sex between the baby sitter and lowlife prison con.
William Macy is a great actor, but his affectations overwhelm his curious appearance. The speech throughout is often unintelligible, the drunk speech by Rockwell's friend of twenty years to explain everyone's motivation is garbled. We are supposed to feel Sam's betrayal but instead, you 'll find yourself turning the volume up 'what the heck did he say??'
The ending is apt, though you root for the 'basic good guy who's lost his way' to get out of this mess, he doesn't seem to rise above his losses nor wants to.
Beware graphic violence, nudity but happily if there's nasty language, you can't tell.
