A slow survival film. Not in that we see them intelligently (or stupidly) design and think their way out of situations, but in that they are slowly approaching a situation of certain death by dehydration. I really liked it, but it is extremely slow and I have to present that warning.
The ambient music was reminiscent of a video game (Silent Hill and Pathologic came to mind), the slow camera work and extended dialog (and some singing) was entertaining and thoughtful. I really like period pieces, and for the most part I found it accurate without being too preachy about the racism of the past. The racism is well presented, and still optimistic about how one might view natives in the future. We don't know why the native is following them, and he genuinely could be dangerous, but we also don't trust Meek's point of view.
WW: Mom, and dad watched the end. He wasn't a fan, understandably.
