This is… not what I expected from a Tony Scott movie? It’s… it’s really powerful? And strange? And sad?
It kinda feels exploitative? “Look at these odd people from the countryside.” But… It’s riveting?
The 2K restoration by the BFI is quite nice… the image generally looks great, but they haven’t done a lot with some specific glitches, which would require a lot more manual work, I guess?
But it looks great. For the most part.
Rosamund Greenwood is absolutely amazeballs here. She’s totally this character.
I also really like how Scott sets up an O. Henry twist… and then it fails.
