First Cow

First Cow ★★★½

A pleasant, kind-hearted story about friendship that also manages in its own way to be an eclectic blend of various genres and themes. It's beautiful to watch, courtesy of Blauvelt, and Reichardt does a wonderful job of slowly enveloping you in the environment and its vivid details. The first half is very slow, oftentimes to a fault, but when the film builds out its central relationship and plot in the second half, the film's emotional essence snaps back into clear focus. I liked and appreciated this, didn't love it, but it deserves the re-release and to be seen by as many people as possible.
