What a frustrating misfire.
Part of me wants to say that this is Saulnier's Dunkirk, but also to make sure and follow that up by saying that there are very few filmmakers out there who can successfully cough up two hours' worth of movie that essentially trades plot for theme and still have it work (and I barely think Nolan did it).
Hold the Dark is a sleeper of the highest order; a film that really makes itself known well…
