    Surprisingly, far from finding this movie boring, I felt drawn in by vastness of the scenery and the dreariness of it. I also felt the main characters anxiousness and desperation. The Turk and his "pep talk", although earnestly delivered and thought provoking, is the same kind of talk anyone who is contemplating suicide or is depressed gets from others. Sometimes, it can help heal, but other times, it is cruelly lacking in understanding of the depressed mind. Still, a very impactful movie. 4 years 3 months ago
