A great thriller that doesn't need to blow things up
I've been following the work of the director Tim Mccann for quite a while. He won at Toronto with his first ever film called Desolation Angels and was considered one of the best directors to come from NY that year. He never however got into the big time and continued to make these hard core indie movies (see All Mistakes Buried, which is a real gem). With No Beast so Fierce he's made another one that is well worth watching. A story about an ex-con who just left prison to look for his son, the characters, the dialogue, the acting, the locations: everything is spot on realistic. There's no need for huge action set pieces, no explosives, but the story tenses you up and the tension keeps piling on and piling on until you get to a terrific twist at the end. Well worth it.
