I hardly ever give 5 ***** Star Ratings, but I honestly feel this Film deserves it, since so much care was clearly put into the Writing, Acting, Production Design, Cinematography & (sparingly used) Special Effects. So many "Movies" released as of late (you can't even really designate them as 'Films') don't seem to even get one of these Monikers right, let alone land them all in one fell swoop. But 'The VAST of NIGHT' really does excel in virtually ALL AREAS. If you appreciate the finer points of what makes a good Film Great ~&~ you're a Science Fiction (or in the case of our current world climate: 'Science Fact') Fan, you won't want to miss this Masterpiece of Independent Film-making. (;O)
'The Wretched', unlike the vast majority of "Films" today, actually isn't Wretched at all......it's pretty good. What stands out is the Sound, Lighting, Pacing & Suspense. It's not perfect, but is definitely worth a screening (you won't find much else that's decent out there these days.....it's definitely Slim Pickin's - C-V Mania seems to be destroying Films along w/ everything else)
[B+] 3.5 / 5
Oyyyyy Veigh*........(sigh) This Film was indeed (unfortunately) Not Good, and suffered from a number of Issues (e.g. Script, Pacing, Production Design, Costumes, Cinematography, Casting & Editing to name a few) of which even a relatively few of these issues would have made it Problematic at best. I will say 'Angus McFadden' was fine, as per usual, but every other Actor/Actress, even Jared Harris, who is normally great in anything he does, was Uninspired & Dramatically Flaccid.
(*But it's still better than that GOD-AWFUL Netflix mess of the same Historical Story-line, where 'Hollywood Blueberries' Chris Pine & Kickass Guy Hammed up their screen time in illustrious fashion)
