Valley of Shadows (2017)
Critic Reviews for Valley of Shadows
While the imagery is influenced by a wide range of artists from Gustave Doré to Norwegian landscape painter Lars Hertervig, "Valley" is completely modern in design even as its concept remains timeless.
There's real confidence in the filmmaking, creating a shadowy world that washes over you, in which a boy gets lost in his nightmares, perhaps learning that the monster all children fear is a force to be protected.
An intriguing if rarely completely successful piece of work...
The cinematography of Marius Matzow Gulbrandsen is so beautifully framed and textured that it's possible, during the most mesmerizing stretches, to believe that Valley of Shadows is a great debut.
The title Valley of Shadows speaks to its diaphanous nature, a difficult to pin down, ephemeral tale that nonetheless speaks to a greater illumination that helps cast its form.
