    Fantastic performances all around and great chemistry between the two leads. The film becomes a bit overbearing towards the end and revels a bit too much in its depressing tone. Still, Rust and Bone manages to delight and inspire when its two leads are at their best.

    Gorgeous movie -- had some of the best use of lighting I've seen in a while. While that may sound like I'm grasping, lighting can serve the hell out of a movie like this.

    I was very mixed on this film. I really appreciated all the formal elements; the cinematography, the editing, the score, and of course the performances, but I was never invested in these characterss
