A powerful, captivating and raw vision brought masterfully to the screen
16 November 2019 | by michelcassardSee all my reviews

A gripping, well-paced movie that is entertaining and raw, while deftly tackling an important and sensitive subject matter. In 'The Bygone', the Phillips brothers create a novel and beautifully shot world that merges the classic expansive western feel of Sergio Leone with a modern, gritty world where good and evil blur and the murky realities of life have no easy solution.

The film spans thrilling action, powerful emotionally charged scenes of loss and love, and a heart that beats with a strong social cause, that of raising awareness to the horrors of the Native American sex trafficking industry.

From the start, the audience is captivated by stunning, sweeping shots of oil rigs and stretching Oklahoma vistas to the horizon. The filming is honestly outstanding. The plot quickly moves to the personal and complex character Kip, whose backstory is rich and filled with loss and acts as a lens through which the audience views the story to come. Kip's trials throughout the film bring him to face deep moral challenges and multifaceted opponents.

Strong symbolism resounds throughout the film, adding a rich intellectual complexity that raises 'The Bygone' beyond being just an exciting thriller. Clearly incredible detail has gone into every aspect of the production; the cinematography, the cast and script are all meticulously chosen to bring the directors' vision to the screen. Even the music is charged and powerful and keeps the audience enraptured through a number of unforeseen and exciting plot twists.

Overall, a truly impressive directorial debut from the Phillips brothers, a film that highlights a new, unique perspective joining the cinema scene that is not afraid to bring challenging social issues to the fore, while presenting them in a way that is powerful, entertaining and awareness building.

Highly recommend this film.
