The Vast of Night

The Vast of Night ★★★★★

Well that was fantastic. The Vast of Night brilliantly takes its time in developing one of the more intriguing sci fi mysteries of recent years. Though much of what's in the film has been done before, few films have used the sheer overwhelming concept of the unknown in such a powerful way. Director Andrew Patterson shows remarkable restraint in this project. He lets the characters faces and voices tell the story and drive the mystery. In such a way, the film is not about the reveal, but rather the act of engaging in curiosity.
