Like Moneyball, it's compelling but dull, but much more dour than Miller's previous feature. Not bad at all, though I'd hardly watch it again.
Some thoughts (it's late, I'm scared):
- The soundtrack. Holy shit. Even better than It Follows in this aspect; in many others too.
- The writing is this is better than most dramas. Let that sink in.
- Fuck you, audiences of the world. Fuck off. Just go watch Annabelle. (please don't call me a prick if you didn't like The Witch, but please do if you laughed loudly at your screening)
- Not since Eraserhead I've been so scared…
