| A human journey
Reminds me of a Jarmusch film. A thriller with almost little script. Yet, the performances and film-making take you on a subconscious journey. Really liked the film. Lead actor is extremely good. Always love seeing John Savage in anything and he certainly does not disappoint here. Cinematography was edgy, strange and completely sucked me in. Music is haunting and kinda old school in its themes. Kind of like Bernard Herman (for those who know).

I would put it into the genre of men going insane ala The Shining. It tells the story of a recently returning veteran who comes home to a family on the verge. His Dad is a nut. His wife is uptight and sorta crazy. He is trying to be a nice guy but then things are swirling in his head.... To say that you know the story is going to go "bad" is putting it mildly.

The story centers around the family returning to an old cabin in Montana. As they attempt to put their lives back together things begin to spin horribly apart as the past and present collide.

I loved the ending. You are really left with the feeling that things aren't over.
