Let Him Go
November 8, 2020 (135 words)
And now a word of praise for those veteran actors and actresses – like Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Lesley Manville – lucky enough to find good material they can really grab hold off, even this late in their careers.
Praise also for the team of largely unknown filmmakers who create these worlds we can immerse ourselves in for a couple of hours. Each is an artist in their own right, though most will never become a household name. Their anonymous artistry lies in capturing the unobtrusive detail.
Everything they put on the screen registers effortlessly as we sit there in the dark. And then it all resonates with us long after we leave the theater.
The new feature film Let Him Go is one of those. A job well done, all the way around.
