The River (2018)
Critic Reviews for The River
Some may find it aestheticized to a fault, but this is a seductive, sensual work, its melancholy spell pierced by unexpected humor as well as danger.
Although the third act of The River becomes more plot-driven than it really needs to, much of the film is conveyed through rhythm, framing, and atmosphere.
This peculiar and impenetrable look at five boys raised on a secluded farm can be a frustrating endurance test. You'll be rewarded by darkly comic wit and a political allegory that will have you mulling over striking images long after it's over.
A searing, precise portrayal of the dangers of not only luddism, but the dysfunctional possibilities in the absence of love and affection.
