This is a willfully, skillfully crafted film with insufficient heart to the task it undertakes. It never fully connects us to love amid its ruins.
I am curious...have you read the book and understand that the pace is very important? I am not sure what you mean by"insuffient heart". Their lives are f*ucked up and the book doesn't bank on creating heroes who overcome. Believe it no non-Hollywood movies are a bit more complicated. I hope see the movie in Indiana but I am not holding my breath.

Insufficient heart? The Man gets more and more scared for his son as the film progresses until he is panic-stricken. The love he feels for his Boy is on Viggo's face in every frame. Are you nuts?
