It traffics in the same rural poverty and violent revenge, but it loses the thread that sustains Saulnier's previous films. The police massacre, while very well made, is the turn for the worst. The scale of the violence is incredible. And I'm suppose to believe a police chief finds two of his officers executed, and then half of his police force killed in the shootout and that night he invites an outsider over for dinner and a chat about fatherhood? My belief was not suspended, though it was entertaining enough.
