Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The The Vast of Night is an odd one. It’s a beautifully crafted & expertly made with a clever narrative, it feels different (in a good way) and delivers with solid central performances. And if all that sounds like a sideways compliment it kinda is because as well put together as the film is I didn’t love it as much as many have. Don’t get me wrong I get it. I just didn’t love it. Maybe it was when I watched it, maybe it’s just not my thing but I was left a big underwhelmed in the end, especially considering how well received it’s been. Certainly one to make up your mind about.
