  • The Cold Lands is aimless and dull, but has a rich tone and upstate authenticity. show more

  • The Cold Lands is less a story than an experience, and that, as such, anything one might say about it could be considered a spoiler. show more

  • The Cold Lands goes flat in this middle section. Gilroy’s visual style is strong, but he doesn’t frame the images to chart Atticus’ development, and Yelich, whose only previous screen experience is starring in the video Gilroy directed for R.E.M.’s “It Happened Today,” doesn’t suggest what’s going on beneath the layers of trauma and withdrawal. show more
