D: James Gray (The Lost City of Z, The Immigrant, Two Lovers, We Own the Night, The Yards).
S: Brad Pitt, Liv Tyler, Ruth Negga, John Ortiz, Donald Sutherland, Tommy Lee Jones.
A precise premise in a rare atmosphere of resignation and curiosity. At times exhilarating, poetic, melancholy, epic. I've not been a fan of director James Gray's movies and his oeuvre's pseudo-1970s filmic vibes, but this has reached its apotheosis here.
