    ★★★★

    I love the outdoors so by nature I’ll always enjoy atmospheric films with vigorous environmental ambiance. I’m glad Ben Wheatley decided to create something of value during the pandemic rather than just laying around doing nothing! Alma’s character (Ellora Torchiais) is a fine casting choice, not so sure about Joel Fry.

    ⚠️ — Director describes ending(s).

    “The original ending had Aubrey committing suicide. The much more stylized final ending leaves room for thought, which allows the viewer to take what they need from the conclusion.

    “Oh, come on people, don't be so pathetic. Stop looking at the world through your cellphone screens. Have a real experience! Does anybody give a shit about truth other than me? I mean the set is fake, the bananas are fake, there's fucking nothing in this milk carton, your performance is fake. The only thing that is real on this stage is this chicken. So, I'm gonna work with the chicken. Hey that’s good bird, man!”
