A Delicious Cocktail

by rogerco on Sat 23rd Oct 2021. DVD proj @ home (with subtitles)

A film that almost defies categorisation. Obvious elements of the Western, tinges of thriller and horror, all in all an tasty cocktail. From the opening there is something strange going on and you are never quite sure where it is going next (in a good way). Maybe ultimately it is about the power of community.
