newyorker:

The Tribeca Film Festival includes nearly a hundred features.
Richard Brody on “Men Go to Battle,” one film that stands high above the others:

[Zachary] Treitz captures rugged country life at a muscular
level. The actors’ terse wit, chewy accents, and impulsive gestures
suggest great physical force as well as equally great cultural
constraints, ambient violence and a fear of God. The production
designer, Jacob Heustis, is the film’s virtual co-author; the clothing
and the furnishings have the aura of simple authenticity, which is
reinforced by the cinematographer Brett Jutkiewicz’s agile
impressionism, illuminated by streaky sunlight, flickering bonfires, and
dim lanterns.
