Cynicism wins out. This had really great moments, the deer scene maybe being the best, where it rides the lines between the more typical cynical view that “serious” films represent lately and more nuanced characterization. The guy is honestly interesting, but they throw that all away with a lame ending that becomes lopsided. He doesn’t seem to know how to end movies, the problem isn’t the exact same, but All is Lost seemed to also take a boring way out after building up something interesting.
