A film I really had to share this week is Z for Zachariah, a recent release based around survival and sacrifice it’s one of the best films I’ve seen in a while.
The film itself is really beautiful to watch literally in terms of just photography, the shooting location is stunning and really makes the best of natural landscapes to set the films mood throughout.
The cast is small just three main actors, and it really works the intensity is really genuine. I was hooked through the whole film you just don’t know what is going to happen next, and your actually left wondering what did happen ?
A true cliffhanger ending making you want a second installment that will never happen. This is a focused drama with a hint of Sci-Fi and thrilling developments which anyone will fall for. It’s really a gem in the midst of films coming out at the moment which cannot be missed.
It’s been two months since I finally decided to actually watch this film.
For some reason I wasn’t looking forward to it much, perhaps because this one looks like the sort of film that would of been out years ago and maybe the war films are just overdone now I don’t know.
Truth is I should have watched this ages ago, it’s really impressive !
The film brings out the best of Kristen Stewart who fits into her role as the new girl at Camp Delta with a lot to learn, and yes perhaps the story line is really predictable at first…
As you go on though the tension really rises and it leaves you questioning what you would do in each situation that pops up, and you know a film is good when your thinking this way…
The struggle through the film feels genuine and it’s shot well too, the sense of confinement is real and you really don’t know how things are going to end up. This film was a pleasant surprise but not for everyone so it’s a 8/10 for me.
