This is an excellent movie even considering the slow pace and lack of action. Nicholas Cage so thoroughly embodies the character he is unrecognizable for most of the film. This is a rare film from Hollywood that does not push any agenda but rather simply follows a man who has decided to isolate in a cabin in the woods and the backstory that got him there. Throughout, Cage is disheveled. With a dirty and bloody face, exemplifying the state his character is in. Even though it is slow in it's storytelling, the acting and complexity of the plot makes for an excellent film. And there is already an Oscar buzz.
