"The Loneliest Planet" is a fascinating sleeper that I'm very glad I took a chance on. This is a haunting film about an American couple who go on a picturesque hike in the country of Georgia. Along way, something happens which I will not reveal. It happens in the blink of an eye (it's so fast you might miss it if you turn away), and it completely changes the dynamic of the film, the characters, and their relationships to one another. It's at this point that "The Loneliest Planet" turns from a pleasant but somewhat uneventful indie something quite interesting and ultimately pretty unforgettable. Masculinity, guilt, gender, and many other subtextual themes play out here in a very unconventional and disquieting way. The film is aided immensely by some absolutely stunning cinematography and majestic scenery. The mountains of Georgia feel immense and overpowering, and feel even more so when the story takes a drastic turn and things get weird. Throw in a great score and you have one of the best under-the-radar movies I've seen recently. I feel like I'll definitely be revisiting "The Loneliest Planet" in the future.
