Thriller with Depth and Independent Charm
7 October 2016 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

Buster is a man walking on the edge of a knife. On the run from the law in the Montana wilderness and fueled by drugs and crackpot theories, Buster breaks into cabins and rants about "the coming inversion" and when things will be turned upside down. He is the "last free man." In flashbacks we piece together events of Buster's shattered life and see glimpses of the person he once was. As a family man named Jonah, he worked hard, went to church, suffered verbally abusive in-laws and co-workers, and followed all the rules. During the night shift at a small town hotel, Jonah encounters a dangerous drifter who has a devastating impact on his life. It begins his transition to Buster. Who Buster really is and who he will turn out to be, is a matter of immense consequence to those Buster has brought into his life. It is a cosmic mistake that he got this far.

The film is a cerebral thriller. Part of the vanguard series at the Toronto International Film Festival, an integration of film and art that I love, the film has tremendous depth and independent charm. It includes amazing quotes, immense wit and creativity, Biblical allusions including a nod to the story of Jonah and the whale, and a dreamy puzzle of a plot. It is set mostly in Western Montana and the surreal forests of Western larch and firs. While I loved the plot, storyline and setting, it is a little disjointed and could definitely benefit from a larger budget and the filmmakers getting more experience under their belts. I work for the National Park Service and noticed the characters wearing our uniform askew, but I doubt anyone else will notice or care about the same. A film sound/audio company in the credits should get a prize for their name; Eargasm. LOL! World premiere seen at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival.
