seems like netflix has a pretty poor track records with original movies. even with dope casts.

i was gonna check it out either tonight or tomorrow. but your reply and some of the comments ive seen about it on the net make we wanna not waste my time.

so maybe you are going to want to give it a shot, i can't call it.

i was excited going in and by the end i was hate watching.

the fact that this got a theatrical release is HILARIOUS. if they think they're getting oscar nom's, they can get fucked.

I don't care for wilderness and snow/ice backdrops at all, and with a few notable exceptions such as The Gray or Alive that present a premise I find particularly compelling, I generally don't care for movies that feature wilderness and snow settings at all.

I enjoyed The Green Room a lot. And I was hoping this would be the movie to push Jeffrey Wright into the spotlight again.

But yeah I've heard nothing good about this flick. I was going to watch it this week, but I think I'm going to pass.

As big as Netflix has gotten, they still have yet to crack the code for box office or Oscar winning hits. Amazon seems to be ahead of them in that race.

the overt "poetry" of the dialogue stood out in a bad way, but I dug the theme of a thin dividing line without needing much more subtext.

darkly beautiful, with a lot of trademark Saulnier intensity and mood throughout. I'll go back to it again.
