It is incredibly effective... [director Jan Zabeil] really sets you up.
August 5, 2019
The harsh, forbidding environment naturally lends an air of danger, and Zabeil confidently, quietly winds the suspense around the potential breaking point...

What results is a harrowing, entirely gripping high-stakes, high-altitude drama where microaggressions lead to macro-results.

There's just enough closure to its inconclusive climax to allow you to relax, even if it doesn't give you much to terribly ponder during the drive home.

Three Peaks features some glorious cinematography as this domestic drama plays out. The film may feel a bit slight at times, but it is often quite absorbing.

There's more to the screenplay, and that's the beauty of Zabeil's work, introducing new perspectives on seemingly innocent behaviors.

Three Peaks ripples with a heady mixture of animosity and genuine affection.
July 1, 2019
Three Peaks is a thriller of a decidedly unconventional sort...A more clichéd effort would have succumbed to third-act fireworks as a reward for enduring such a slow-burn build-up. But Zabeil rejects predictable paths.

This isn't your daddy's drama/thriller. It's a meticulously crafted film that, in its very self-disciplined way, is far stronger than movies that go for the emotional jugular from the git-go.

The uneven narrative momentum is redeemed by emotional complexity and a trio of convincing performances.

"Three Peaks" has a placid surface, but Zabeil uses abstraction - with edits that elide information or play tricks with spatial perception - to deepen a trite scenario.
June 27, 2019
Three Peaks transforms the emotional labor of building a family into real, tangible threats, slowly building to a conclusion that feels both inevitable and horrifying.

Refreshingly un-Hollywood, poetic and understated with breathtaking cinematography and scenery worth seeing on the big screen.

Whatever you do, don't forget to breathe.
