Deviation from the norm will be punished unless it is exploitable
I’m only giving this a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½ to give it some room to grow on me with inevitable rewatches but everything about this was executed perfectly. The stark white cinematography where the sky and ground converge to create a shroud of white in spite of the fact that this was shot during the second warmest Minnesota winter in 100 years. Frances McDormand and Steve Buscemi especially knock it out of the park with their acting. The score was excellent and embodied the bleak melancholy loneliness this movie is imbued with.
