Fantastic crime story, straight-shooting and impacting. Like his previous film, Hell or High Water, Sheridan is reviving the Western in the best and most dramatic ways.
I won't go too into detail here, but I want to share how this film brought me to tears by having two men--one Native American, one White-- bonding and weeping together over their shared grief. So powerful. The last images of the film with those two together are without a doubt my favorite and could be a short film unto themselves.
Also, Jon Bernthal surprise???
If you're looking for a social epic with sweeping courtroom scenes and dramatic proclamations, look somewhere else. "Loving" is exactly what I thought it would be. A quiet, pensive peek into the lives of a true couple who faced adversity simply to live a married life as an interracial couple in the late 50s early 60s.
This film is one of moments. Jeff Nichols wastes no a single shot here. If your eyes are open, you will see hushed symbolism…
