The Hunt ★★★½

The film has some strange cinematography.

There are many zooms in the film, but they feel out of place. This might’ve been to create a documentary style, but I don’t think it works as well as Children of Men. 

It’s rare that I notice lens choices, but here, I noticed a wide lens consistently on the main character to show his state of mind. I think the result was jarring when intercut with telephoto lenses. A movie that did this well was Seven

I didn’t think I’d continue watching after 10 minutes, but the film gets stronger as it goes on. Very sad 😢
