Audience Reviews for Hunter Gatherer

  • Nov 22, 2016
    I have loved Andre Royo ever since his standout performance in the Wire. He lives up to lofty expectations in Hunter Gatherer. An interesting look at the timeless bond of unlikely friendship and connection against the backdrop of the harsh realities of living as a poor black man in America. I greatly enjoyed the first 3/4's of this film. The expert mix of strong performances, a splash of dark comedy and a rewarding look at the lead characters growing bond. I really feel the last part of the film disappointed. The way the film went was maybe not too surprising, and the final shot was rewarding and beautiful, but I have to confess I was not a fan of the darker turn to get to that payoff. It felt like an unnatural progression and shift. The supporting cast of characters was also rich and interesting. The characters are believable, grounded and authentic. You generally feel you are watching a documentary of Ashley's life. His brisk joyful view on life is constantly tested against the darker pain of his true reality. His sidekick in crime Jeremy is a kindred spirit in this regard, although he is a bit more blissfully ignorant. Their slow spiral into tragedy seems inevitable and you want to share in the experience. The flaw is that the path to the film's rewarding final scene betrayed the earlier tone and identity of the film.
