    Forgot if I made a thread for this when I saw it in Telluride.

    I was the last one allowed in, which was pretty cool.

    Almost feels like Reichardt's "greatest hits" (in the best way), given how many of her thematic and stylistic predilections are there but shaped into a fresh, at times unexpected direction -- another angle of American frontier's hardship (Meek's Cutoff); the story of outcasts trying to get by in a grinding, capitalist economy (Wendy and Lucy); sensitive, soulful exploration of male friendship (Old Joy); and even her understated rhythm applying effectively on genre stakes (the caper here to Night Moves' bombing plan).

    That last aspect gets a tad suspensefully excruciating for me, since it comes after an hour of gently establishing the two men's rich, aching bond and detailing their emerging venture, lending each near-miss and actual mistake some real emotional impact. And it makes that final shot of pure grace, in which the devastating context is given very early on, become Reichardt's best, most beautiful ending ever. 8.5/10
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5
