Maybe while on the pronounced trend too early, but I see it origin — good scripts began to migrate to side the famous film companies that at this, despite the low budget, rent some good movies for these scenarios. I think reason is that major manufacturers of films and TV series are linked at the hands and feet the requirements of various trade unions and other movements for the protection and promotion of the rights of various communities. Probably not related, but asprawl, as a circus performer-a juggler trying to keep ten pins in hands, the tip of the nose, under the arms, at the same time standing on wobbly structures. Of course, in this is also visible on the plus side, in addition to, of course. basic — satisfaction of the senses of community members. Filmmakers have to be supercreative and to exercise maximum creativity and talent to this position to do good movies.

Returning to the film, just note its strengths. First of all it is a good game John Bernthal, no, well, honestly — very good game, considering that he it fits a little more than the Rock Dwayne Johnson on the role of the elusive spy. If the analogy with the hero of the series "the Punisher" where John Bernthal plays Punisher, then Frank castle (aka the Punisher) and Sam — two sides of the same coin: both wait save limit, only the first then piles all the bad guys in the area, the second is more flexible. In General, it is clear that the actor has put a lot of effort most likely to play your character. So I liked the fact that in the film without hesitation shown good human relations between people — that only is the dialogue between Sam and his assistant after the match. And generally, "Death on Alaska," there's something so hard to achieve all of the top film companies in the production of films — the reality of the situation.

Throughout the film, it appears that the faithful — this in General, not an empty word, but is strongly tied to karma. One man 5 years didn't have sex with his wife, in the result has grown horns and took a bullet. The second was negoluboj and lied to his wife — the result was killed. Even the main character and he is very timid and secretive in revealing his feelings to a point. Perhaps it sounds too cinematic, but something this.

The killer, incidentally, also turned out to be successful: it is not quite familiar heartless psychopath in the spirit of Anton chigur or Frank underwood. Yeah, he is inadequate, with the point of view of society, its actions, too impulsive, and the impression is that it is not subject to fear of condemnation or censure. But moment a telephone conversation with the mother, an attempt to invite the restaurant or an act of mercy in robbery — all manifestations of humanity who are completely absent from modern movies created the image of a psychopath. And it is very animates his way one side causing a nostalgia for the films of the mid-90s and earlier, where even the vilest of villains had an excuse for their actions, and other — complements the existing image with a new tint.

On the one hand, and cut ninety minutes of screen time in this film something is impossible, so as the pieces of each episode and scene stack up a complex main character, but that point I want to give a kick to the actions of "Death on Alaska" evolved more rapidly, and the dullness of the narrative of history can and a dream to push.

But large, the film turned out good, he not have enough of the smallness to grow up something truly great, a kind of mixture of the atmosphere "Guest" "Old men do not place", although of course to identical comparison "Death on Alaska" here far. What really like — is the characters of this film, each with its mysteries and chic incarnation of heroes.

Christopher Abbott and does seems gave one of the most memorable villains of the past year, if this film is greater scale and scope, the role of Abbott without doubt would be seen by many guilds. In a nutshell — the story of the film about the criminal mess staged one of the guests in the quiet town, which is itself in principle to return home as not against, but since it still not paid for a previous case — a little he decides to postpone his departure that causes a new victim.

The characters in the film and many, but the three main figures of this story shows the authors of the film well with its share of drama in relationships between each other. "Death on Alaska" — an atmospheric Thriller in the best colors independent products, which if not him the slowness could with confidence more attention from the critics and viewers.

When you nothing expect without lay the hopes and simply turn it on in order to pass the time, then the pleasure is doubled if this movie is the opposite of expectations. So happened film"Sweet Virginia", which we were transferred somehow "Murder on the AK", the next kowtow to the localizers.

Personally, I expect to see something on the similarity of the summer Thriller "Windy river", where by the way also played the newly Punisher John was Burtal. But expectations failed me, and I must say that failed at the good side.

The main roles of the film actually got John Bertolo, and also Christopher Abbott, who played in quite a passable horror" it comes in the night". With every new film of Christopher growing as the actor, the evolution is very noticeable. Its antagonist was very colorful, somewhat reminiscent of antagonists the Coen brothers. He inhibits nerve impulses within itself, and it is given to him with difficulty. He can't communicate, it seems incredibly distant, and weird tries to joke, but the humor is a bit black. Again, humor is reminiscent of the above mentioned brothers.

The appeared a very unusual role in again proving can play just a macho man and any fighters. Here he plays a broken man, who often recalls the past. This by the way a separate issue in this film. Despite all your a simple horror plot, the movie focuses on all existing characters. It shows them the breakdown, nervous tension. And a gets the frame, who given time has their vices.

In the movie amazing working atmosphere of something irreversible, dark and frightening. Long and dark visuals, the music that plays on the duration of the film stronger deepens you into the atmosphere.

The whole film, with the exception of some of the scenes takes place at night, in the evening or early in the morning, place the sun practically not there. So I noticed that the Director has taken the armed with a very good example of symbolism, and it — dreams. Dreams characters. They all the time talking about the nightmares, they have horror, darkness, gloom. And though correlation of the main characters not so strong, they still all together form a single, depressed body.

Overall, the Director has made a huge step compared to the previous film, have done comprehensive work on errors. Have it turned out just fine.

Movies without the budget, no special effects, only prove how important the work of the operator, as an important collection of musical accompaniment and of course acting. It here high level.

By the way the film will appeal to anyone who loves Scandinavian detective, soon, with what can be compared — "the Girl with the dragon tattoo" Fincher.
