    "An elk doesn't know how many feet a horse has!" - Maybe it was just faith, falling for this one. One of the greatest fans of "Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales", both also slow burning westerns, who avoid the violence for action. A true search for freedom in silence. What a truly stunning cinematography. Helps to immerse in the expedition of a lifetime. The wolves scene rules, better than "The Revenant". Till now one of my favorite Pollack's.

Impressed that it touched me in the way it did.

Even if a lot of scenes where superficially striking to the eye. Adil El Arbi's political and ideological exploitations in Belgian mass media should be questioned...

    Will she be able to turn back her decisions? - An interesting ride it was. I thought that Paz de la Huerta's career was going to end where it really took off, at Choke (2008) and Noë's Enter The Void (2009). The recent Nurse (2013), was pretty much garbage. Here she is casted in a role once again that's written on her body. The performance by Dianna Agron is at least a pleasant surprise. An easy, well paced story. Hated…
