4K Ultra HD
Director: Mélanie Laurent
Actors: Ben Foster, Jeffrey Grover, Christopher Amitrano
Plot: After escaping a set up, a dying hitman returns to his hometown of Galveston where he plans his revenge.
Disc Release Date: 11 December 2018
It deserves a demo rating for it's technical handling of black levels even if many will be scratching their heads over just why it's so dark.
Galveston's audio track is more than up to the challenge of providing a hearty, atmospheric backdrop.
A few previews on startup and a 20-minute Making-of Featurette keep this from being completely bare-bones.
An odd melange of True Detective, You Were Never Really Here and The Florida Project, with compelling results.
Ben Foster really deserves more credit than he generally gets; his lead projects like this and the equally underrated Leave No Trace themselves appear to disappear without a trace.
