A beautifully shot, and acted film (not just Dafoe, who is, indeed, awsome). I enjoyed it immensely, although The Hunter's ultimate redeption does require perhaps a little too much suspension of disbelief
Superb "lone man in the woods afer mythical animal" genre movie. Dafoe brings gravitas to the central role, indeed all the performances are good. Brilliant photography. Recommended.
Willem Dafoe is such a great actor and here he does not disappoint..l enjoyed this film in spite of some weaknesses in the script...Dafoe provides the film's it's tension and thrills,However just as the film gets going,a silly romantic interest starts to take centre stage..A number of other irrelevant sub plots also pop up...Dafoe finds a place to stay..It is a run down shack with no hot water no electricity and is filthy..Yet in this remote neglected hole is a lonely drop dead gorgeous woman..Yet when she is on screen she is clean,has shiny hair and is a great cook..It is just plain daft...Much as l like Dafoe,the real star of the show is the incredible prehistoric Tasmania landscape..It is worth the money just to see Dafoe acting splendidly in this awesome wilderness,but the script is a little trite
Very emotional film. Do not watch if you have an aversion to seeing cute furry creatures strung up, though! Agree that Willem Dafoe is the best thing about it - he's why I went to see it.
I thought this was a great story one man's career and ambition comes up against his humanity and you can't tell right to the end which is going to come out on top. I thought the tension was provided from family situation not too mention what happens up on the plateau. Good film 4/5.
