A dollop or two of Cumberbatch to tide you over
Those who, like us, are always hungering for fresh Cumberbatch might want to give this one a look. It's a bit like an updated version of a D.H. Lawrence story ("The Fox"?) or maybe one of those tales of depraved country life that are satirized in "Cold Comfort Farm." Time sequence and plot mechanics are sometimes a little vague; the contrast between the leisurely, naturalistic buildup and the stark, abrupt resolution ("at one fellow swoop" as a Netflix reviewer adorably put it) was a little unsettling as well. First-rate performances and camera-work, interesting locations. BC fans not fond of arty, impressionistic films should prob'ly stay away.
