    Down in the Valley is a wild thing that sticks with you long after it's over. You know, a real movie. show more

    In the end, it's really just a thriller, slower than most, with pockets of dead time but with a few extra flourishes, too, thanks to Norton. show more

    As it progresses, the film takes us to another borderland, that between reality and delusion. This is where Harlan's mind freely gallops. show more
