This seemingly uncomplicated film is one of my favorites: these are films where the plot, taking overclocking from the first frame, slowly unfolds by itself, like in a documentary film.
The heroes do not play a role in it, they do not act out the scenes, they just live.
And then a giant earthworm crawls up to them (or rather, not a worm at all, it’s just a HIT, as the creators called this creature!). And that’s all: there is no way to tear yourself away from the film before the last monster is finished off (although it has been revised already, probably 10 times!).
I agree: this film has something of a western, and this is definitely a plus for him.
I love these films – where the action takes place in the great expanses of America, among a meager but mesmerizing landscape. Guys in cowboy hats on pickup trucks, women in plaid shirts tied at the waist …
Yes, the husband and wife will not save in front of the monster, but will take their guns and shoot back like the Real Heroes of America. So what if their boots are covered with the dust of the state of Nevada, it even suits them!
This is a film about fearless people.
I will watch it every time, from any place.
An unassuming masterpiece!
