THE HUNTER- I really, really long to go visit my friend Russell in Tasmania, though I hope his pals are friendly to Americans than the Tassies found in this film. The sheer beauty and mystery of that strange little island of Australia just amazes me and this film highlights much of it. The story of the Tassie Tiger is really interesting too, again hitting a personal longing to take on my own personal search for this extinct creature. The story of the movie, however, feels a little strange and the talk of cloning and the appearance of Sam Neill finds me thinking Jurassic Park in a really weird way. Willem Dafoe delivers and I enjoyed his strangely meticulous character who scrubs a tub to enjoy a bath before embarking upon a rugged hunt. Absolutely love little Morgana Davies, a few moments of her colorful dialogue and anyone can see why. The ending I won't give away, but head scratching and unsettling selfish. A recommend if only for the beauty of Tasmania.
