First Cow

First Cow ★★★★½

Unfolds like a storybook version of the untamed west as portrayed in McCabe & Mrs. Miller (its goofy, elegiac tone and its buddy-comedy vibes also recalled, for me, Pynchon's Mason & Dixon). I wish more films had such lovely use of low and natural lighting. Shout out to Kelly Reichardt for ending her film with a dedication to Peter Hutton.
