It Comes At Night

It Comes at Night is incredibly manipulative in the way it reels you in, first assisting you in comfort and then, in the blink of an eye, taking you to the edge of insanity.  The film is dark but not a horror film per se.  It’s an on the edge of your seat thriller that pulls you in several directions at once; barely allowing you a moment to rest before tugging at again you again.  Watching, you’re like the young woman in the opening scene of Jaws, being whipped about and then pulled into the depths of the unknown.  The unknown in this instance is what comes at night, in the darkness, when you’re alone and everything around you is a potential threat.      This is a story about a family who has a home deep in the woods that is now their hideaway from whatever happened to the rest of the world.  What happened is unidentified but it was toxic.  Something made people who were exposed to ‘it’ violently ill.  This plaque of sorts kills you rather quickly and those who figured it out and hoped they weren’t exposed ran away and either contaminated others with their infection or learned how to live with it.  Paul and Sarah, their son Travis have learned how to cope and also protect themselves from being vulnerable.  Sadly, as we learn in the opening...

I, Daniel Blake

At the beginning of the film, there is only sound.  We hear a man answering questions presented to him by a healthcare professional.  The questions are frustrating him as they don’t have anything to do with the reason he’s calling but he gets on with answering them anyway as he’s expected to.  Some of this is quite comical but when you realize how serious his situation is, you see that the “professional” in health isn’t exactly helpful and certainly doesn’t seem to care much for what he has to say; which is the theme of the movie. Daniel Blake, (Johns, in his first feature film), is an older man who until recently was a carpenter.  He has a serious heart condition and his doctor hasn’t cleared him to work.  Due to something he’s sure is an error, he is all of the sudden considered eligible to work and loses his unemployment benefits.  Seems now he can only receive a “job seekers allowance,” which is considerably smaller and not something he can live on.  He can file an appeal, it’ll be looked at and, hopefully, it will come back in his favor.  Obstacle after obstacle is in this man’s way.  Not only is it nearly impossible for someone to get through on the phone to these “professionals” because they’re out of touch with patients (they’re sitting in a call center), but...
