Good film
A good film, ostensibly set in Canada. It is more about mood, ambiance and loyalty than murder. Clark Johnson is a very charming man in a role that could be unsympathetic but he pulls it off. Steven Tree as a character is flawed, drinking, pills. He fools around with the wrong woman. He has a nasty secret. The hints we get about his nemesis are intriguing, we want to know more. the cast is well chosen for their roles although the acting is a bit spotty. I think it is well worth seeing again as I am sure I missed something the first time through. The film is shot almost entirely in close-up creating a claustrophobic feeling rather than one of intimacy. I have the feeling this is the first in a series but I couldn't find anything. I look forward to another.
