Great Acting, Decent Movie

No idea why people are harshing on this movie. Yes, the plot is simple, but that's because it's not a horror flick or action flick - - it's a psychological family drama thriller. As in, tense. There's beautiful scenery, minimal music, and other than a few scenes (not going to spoil that), most of what happens is fairly straightforward. Joel Kinnaman, looking a bit haggard, (the delicious co-star of The Killing) delivers top-notch acting, as do both of the boys. Their relationship and interaction is believable, and thankfully, there isn't any annoying precociousness or preciousness in the kid's characters. I'm not sure what people were expecting from the movie, but after reading some of the reviews/comments, I watched it anyway, and I wasn't disappointed. If you're looking for something with a lot of violence or gore, or some feel-good story with a dramatic ending, this isn't the film for you. If you are looking for a somewhat bleak story line with great acting, then check it out.

I expected this to be a typical movie about a bonding experience between an alienated father and sons, with a typical upbeat outcome. It turned out to be anything but.

A recently fired ne'er do well loser of a Dad has his two teenage sons dropped off at his place by his ex and her new husband who are departing on a cruise. The older boy is a sullen, whiny klutz, and the younger one is a scatterbrained brat (in other words, typical teenagers). None of them being very bright, the Dad decides to teach his kids how to shoot a rifle, and they drive up to a remote woods way out in the boondocks, even though a blizzard is coming on. The kids slowly drive their father insane (actually, he surely had some serious mental problems to begin with), a succession of calamities occur, the Dad has a psychotic break, and horror ensues. Actually, not too bad a movie. It slowly draws you in, and you begin to understand the characters, who are fumblingly trying to connect with each other, and form a bond. The father-son & brotherly relationships are awkward but sincere. The ending comes quite suddenly and unexpectedly, and it isn't very pretty. The problems aren't resolved and there are a lot of loose ends, just as there always are in life. We all just have to keep on, and do the best we can.

psychosis in the north country

The acting was superb. The plot was vague at times but I found that intriguing and it added to the suspense as it didn't follow a typical psycho killer format. There were clues in the plot that give possible answers to most of the questions as to why a poor example of a father could deteriorate into a delusional killer so quickly and I liked the ambiguity of that. The camera work was quite nice too. The location as desolate as the emotions, but still beautiful. Remarkable work by the two boys. Mr. Kinnamen's character so painful to watch. Frightening but believable. Well worth the watch, for an intimate look at failed parenting and trauma.
