so nerve-wracking and tense. an attack on serenity within the calm mountain fog. mackenzie davis and caitlin fitzgerald are both great, but davis excels at displaying envy in a way that i’ve seen few other actors do. escalating from peace to absolute psychological chaos and torment, a reserved orchestration of kind order that switches fiercely and stunningly into growing, building, pumping malaise. for the first time in a very long time, a movie actually managed to make me squirm out of pure tension and discomfort, and violence/gore are completely absent. outstanding work as both as a fun movie and a slowburn thriller.
go into this knowing absolutely nothing.
