BONE TOMAHAWK
2015, RLJ Entertainment, 133 min, USA, Dir: S. Craig Zahler

This unusual mix of Western and horror stars Kurt Russell as sheriff Franklin Hunt, who keeps the townsfolk of Good Hope safe with the help of his trusty deputy (Richard Jenkins). When a drifter with something to hide arrives and is wounded in a bar fight, both he and the doctor who treats him (Lili Simmons) vanish, leading Hunt and his search party (which also includes Mathew Fox and Patrick Wilson) to a tribe of cannibalistic Troglodytes. Sharply scripted and beautifully shot, this quietly contemplative – and at times shockingly violent – film will have you rooting for these men by the time they arrive at the cannibals’ lair.
